PARIS, March 10 (Reuters) - Former All Blacks lock Ali Williams is about to be fired by Racing 92 after having been charged with purchasing cocaine, club president Jacky Lorenzetti was quoted as saying.

"Unfortunately, he will soon be fired," Lorenzetti told rugby weekly Midi Olympique.

The 35-year-old Williams was charged last month.

Former Wallabies winger James O'Connor, who plays for Toulon, was also arrested and charged with possession.

Both players have been stood down by their clubs. (Reporting by Julien Pretot; Editing by Alison Williams)
