Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding set to leave Ulster Rugby

The pair were found not guilty of rape and sexual assault, in late March, after a protracted trial in Belfast

Stuart Olding and Paddy Jackson are set to leave Ulster Rugby, according to Press Association.

Following their trial, the rugby players were to take part in an internal review, held by the IRFU and UIster Rugby, which was "in line with existing procedures for all contracted players."

David Young, Ireland editor of PA, has stated that Ulster Rugby and the IRFU are expected to release a statement on the matter. That statement could come as early as Saturday but it may not be released until Monday.


A week after the verdict was reached Jackson, an outhalf for Ulster and Ireland, released his own statement. In it he said he was "ashamed that a young woman who was a visitor to my home left in a distressed state".

Ulster defeated Ospreys 8-0 at Ravenhill Stadium in Belfast on Friday evening but there was no official comment on the internal review given to reporters after the game.
