Cleared of rape, Jackson will never play for Ireland again

Cleared of rape, Jackson will never play for Ireland again

"They have done a lot for Ulster and Irish rugby", he said.

Where to next for Jackson and Olding was discussed on this week's The Hard Yards rugby show, a JOE podcast.

"Following a review, conducted in the aftermath of recent court proceedings, the Irish Rugby Football Union and Ulster Rugby have revoked the contracts of Patrick Jackson and Stuart Olding with immediate effect", their statement read.

Logan was speaking for the first time since the decision was made to revoke the players' contracts and he says he does not expect them to return to play for the province in the future.

A French rugby club has dismissed as "fake news" reports that they were recruiting sacked Ireland and Ulster rugby player Paddy Jackson.

"We know that the two boys will be successful both on and off the pitch wherever they go".

The Ulster Rugby and IRFU review has focused on a series of sexually explicit WhatsApp messages revealed during the trial involving the players and their friends.

"I have my own views on that obviously, but I think someone from Ulster Rugby needs to come out and make that very clear".

Antonio Conte Angered By Chelsea's Lack of Desire in First Half
Dusan Tadic and debutant Jan Bednarek put Southampton in position to record a first home win in the Premier League since November. Conte swiftly responded by hauling off the disappointing Alvaro Morata and Davide Zappacosta for Pedro Rodriguez and Giroud.

Logan, who has since refused to quit his position as chief executive, said that he believed both men had made a "serious mistake" but hoped they would find success elsewhere.

"I hope that they will learn from that and I hope they fulfil their potential going forward".

Mr Logan insisted sponsorship money did not have any impact on the club's decision. Jackson was also found not guilty of sexual assault.

Last week, one of Ulster Rugby's major sponsors, Bank of Ireland, said it had contacted the club with concerns over "serious behaviour and conduct issues" arising from the rape trial.

Following the trial Jackson said he is "ashamed" for the distress caused to a women he met at a party in 2016, which led to a trial for rape.

"But at the end of the day, having looked at all those things, the decision was based on alignment with what it is we stand for in particular the value of respect".

Mr Wallace said Mr Jackson and Mr Olding "will be able to start again and rebuild their careers" and could come back to Ulster's Kingspan stadium "in another jersey on some European night".

Both players were acquitted of all charges, but it was decided they were to be let go due to their behaviour regardless.
