Clermont rule out move for Paddy Jackson

Clermont rule out move for Paddy Jackson Clermont rule out move for Paddy Jackson

The pair had been on trial to face charges in relation to the alleged rape and sexual assault of a woman in 2016, and while they were subsequently acquitted, their conduct was such that Ulster saw fit to terminate their contracts.

Money did not influence the decision to revoke the contracts of rugby stars Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding, the head of Ulster Rugby has told the Press Association.

Meanwhile, French champions Clermont Auvergne have ruled out recruiting Jackson, saying speculation they wanted to sign the former Ulster and Ireland out-half was "false information".

A third player, Craig Gilroy - who was not involved in the trial - has also apologised for his part in the conversations and been disciplined with a two-week suspension.

"They have done a lot for Ulster and Irish Rugby".

As for the rugby authorities, the fact that there will now be a review within the game in Ireland to ensure core values are understood, supported and practised at every level, must be regarded as a welcome first step.

"I think there's a sense among the fans that they've been left in the dark a bit".

Mr Wallace said he was sure fans would welcome Mr Jackson and Mr Olding back to Ulster's Kingspan stadium if they return with another club against their old side.

"Quite a vague statement has been brought out".

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

Rob Hunter, Exeter's forwards coach, was speaking to the club's official website in the aftermath of their 45-5 victory over London Irish on Sunday and stated the following.

"That is the core issue here and that is why they're moving on because they didn't meet the code of conduct that Irish players are held to".

The two men were informed on Saturday that they would no longer be welcome to play the game with the province after details of their private Whatsap messages came into the public domain during the trial and both would have to seek employment elsewhere.

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