Ulster Fans Asked To Fill Out Survey Following Jackson/Olding Sacking

Ulster Fans Asked To Fill Out Survey Following Jackson/Olding Sacking

The duo were acquitted last month in a high-profile case in Belfast.

In a statement on Saturday, the IRFU and Ulster Rugby said: "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".

The review focused on a series of explicit group text conversations involving the players and their friends, which was revealed during the trial.

The decision to revoke the players' contracts has not been welcomed by some supporters, with the official Ulster Rugby Supporters Club consulting their membership over possible protests for this Saturday's Pro14 meeting with Glasgow, the last home game of the season.

Mr Logan said the details which emerged during the trial had stunned the club.

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

"The IRFU's management committee unanimously made a recommendation to revoke the players' contracts".

'I think there's a sense among the fans that they've been left in the dark a bit, ' Wallace told RTÉ radio. That sums up how we all feel about it.

"In my experience, the culture is actually very healthy and very good, and a couple of players made serious errors of judgement".

Asked about their chances of appearing for Ireland, he said: "The position is joint".

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

The Ulster Rugby Supporters Club is now canvassing opinion amongst its 938 members over whether they will protest against Ulster's decision or not ahead of, or during, Saturday's Pro14 game against Glasgow Warriors at Kingspan Stadium.

However, Logan batted away claims that the Ireland Rugby Football Union had caved in to the baying Twitter mob or that the decision was motivated by money.

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

'We have taken on board everybody's views right across society, right across our supporter group, our sponsor group, our players, clubs, volunteers, we are part of society.
