The Japan Rugby Football Union on Wednesday requested all teams in the country’s Top League interview their players following the arrests last month of two Toyota Verblitz members on suspicion of possessing cocaine.

At a meeting in Tokyo, the sport’s governing body asked representatives from each team to talk with players in person to seek any possible information about the matter. The JRFU also requested that all teams submit a report.
