Former Ulster and Ireland rugby star Paddy Jackson signs for Perpignan

Former Ulster Rugby star Paddy Jackson has signed for French club Perpignan. He is a confirmed point scorer and a talented lineman Paddy will bring his experience of worldwide level to this team.

Jackson, 26, and fellow Ireland global Stuart Olding were found not guilty of rape in March at the end of an eight-week trial in Belfast, but had their contracts terminated by Ulster following an internal review by the Irish province and the Irish Rugby Football Union.

The club had also, in recent times, been strongly linked to Springbok out-half Elton Jantjies - who, ironically, was thought to be replacing Jackson in Ulster for some time.

"Paddy Jackson, in the tradition of the 10 Irish, knows how to put his individual qualities at the service of the collective; confirmed goal scorer, talented lineman, Paddy has to bring to the team his experience of the worldwide level".

Olding joined French team Brive last month.

An IRFU/Ulster Rugby statement said: "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".
