Paddy Jackson And Stuart Olding To Leave Ulster [Report]


Ulster duo Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding are to leave the Irish province, according to reports on Friday night.

With an official announcement from Ulster and the IRFU due in the coming days, the Press Association have alleged that the Ireland players are to leave the Kingspan Stadium.



Jackson and Olding were acquitted of rape and sexual charges in Belfast last month, but remained suspended while Ulster and Irish rugby’s governing body conducted their own internal review into the players’ behaviour and actions.

With the review said to have concluded this week, the report suggests that an official statement is due within the next 72 hours, possibly as early as Saturday. The pair had said in the immediate aftemath of the trial that their main focus was to return to action with their club and country, but seems highly unlikely now.



As many as 200 protesters gathered at Ravenhill on FIrday evening where Ulster took on Ospreys in a Pro14 clash.
