Paddy Jackson’s search for a new club has come to an end after it was confirmed this morning that the former Ireland out-half has signed a two-year deal with Top 14 outfit Perpignan.
Jackson, of course, has been on the lookout for a new club since his contract was revoked by Ulster Rugby and the IRFU in the aftermath of the much-publicised rape trial in which Jackon was found not guilty on all charges.
Stuart Olding, who also had his contract revoked, has already agreed to sign with Brive in the PRO D2.
Perpignan were recently promoted to the Top 14 from France’s second-tier and they will hope the addition of an international out-half can help establish themselves as a force in the upper echelons of French rugby.

“Paddy Jackson, in the tradition of the 10 Irish, knows how to put his individual qualities at the service of the collective; confirmed goal scorer, talented lineman, Paddy has to bring to the team his experience of the international level,” said Perpignan coach Christian Lanta.
