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

Both Olding and Jackson have expressed regret that their future no longer lies with Ulster.

Jackson (26) and Olding (25) were both acquitted of the rape of the same woman at a party in Jackson's home in June 2016.

"They have made a very serious mistake."

Ulster Rugby CEO Shane Logan also said on Monday that he doesn't think the pair will play for Ulster or Ireland again but denied that sponsorship pressure had any impact on the decision to revoke the duo's contracts.

"No sponsor including Bank of Ireland drove the decision", he said.

Clermont have poured cold water on suggestions that they're interested in signing Paddy Jackson.

The group has surveyed the fanbase in the aftermath of the two players being let go, giving people a number of responses to how they view the move. "We'll have to move quickly to a massive game against Glasgow this weekend".

English Premier League Report: Southampton v Chelsea 14 April 2018
The Frenchman has now earned the right to get a starting place in the cup semi final next Sunday against the same opposition. Giroud started the comeback with a brilliant header in the 70th minute and scored the victor just eight minutes later.

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.

"The players themselves admitted in their own statements that they were way short of what was expected of them". There is no question that all of us have been significantly affected by the charges and the staff.

"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".

In arriving at this decision, the Irish Rugby Football Union and Ulster Rugby acknowledge our responsibility and commitment to the core values of the game: respect, inclusivity and integrity.

The statement continued: "We would encourage as many members as possible to respond, to help the committee accurately reflect the feelings of URSC members and act accordingly".

"It has been extremely hard and traumatic for everybody involved in the case".

Mr Logan also said that "fractures" have occurred among volunteers, players and clubs as a result of the players' dismissal and that his job was to ensure that there was "an opportunity to unite".

"That like any relationship between employer and employee is not something that is in the public domain", he said.
