Ulster Rugby boss explains why Jackson/Olding contracts were revoked

Ulster Rugby boss explains why Jackson/Olding contracts were revoked

When the men at the centre of the Belfast rape trial walked out of court last month after being acquitted of all charges, the assumption was that the sound and fury that had enveloped their nine-week trial would subside and that a line had been drawn under the whole sorry saga.

"That is not something that is being envisaged", Shane Logan told the BBC about the possibility of the players being selected for Ulster again. Quite a vague statement has come out and, just gauging the temperature of the Supporters Clubs, they feel they need a bit more information as to how they came to that decision.

"This was a decision taken because the two guys in their own words admit that their behaviours fell short of what they knew were expected", he said.

Jackson was also unanimously acquitted of sexual assault.

Mr Wallace said Ulster Rugby now has an opportunity to rebuild itself as a brand and for the players to move on.

"The decision itself was probably the decision that had to be made given the public pressure that was mounting and also the sponsorship issue", he told Sean O'Rourke on RTÉ Radio 1 this morning.

Jackson had been linked with the French side this week.

. It's a joint Irish and Ulster rugby position.

"The vast majority of official Supporters Club members are very disappointed", Wallace continued.

"I don't think it's appropriate, I think there's enough of a media frenzy rather than me adding anything to it".

"That is why they are moving on, they didn't meet the code of conduct Irish and Ulster players are held to".

"The decision is made and we have got to manage the future now".

"I think I would concur with the statements of the two players, on a couple of occasions, that they were way below the standards expected of role models".

Some fans have even suggested refusing to renew their season tickets.

"It was kind of a no-brainer from a monetary point of view and that's probably what they based their decision on."
In the aftermath, several reports emerged of English and French clubs interested in both players- Jackson being linked with Clermont while Olding has been linked with Exeter Chiefs.

Former Ireland coach Declan Kidney refused to comment when asked if London Irish would be interested in signing either of Jackson or Olding.

"I think the players and the staff and wider rugby has done well to do as well as they have done in very hard circumstances".
