FORMER ALL BLACK Ali Williams and Australian international James O’Connor were arrested in Paris on Saturday in possession of cocaine, police said.

The pair, currently playing for French Top 14 clubs Racing 92 and Toulon respectively, were stopped at around 3am local time outside a night club near the Champs Elysees and found to be in possession of two grammes (0.07 ounces) of cocaine, police added.

Ex-All Black forward Williams, aged 35, earned 77 New Zealand caps between 2002 and 2012 and currently plays in the second row for Racing 92 in the Top 14 French club championship.

O’Connor, 26, who plays on the wing or at fullback for Top 14 club Toulon, appeared 44 times for Australia between 2008 and 2013.
