The chief executive of Ulster Rugby said he can not envisage Paddy Jackson or Stuart Olding playing for Ulster or Ireland again.

Mr Wallace said he was sure fans would welcome Mr Jackson and Mr Olding back to Ulster's Kingspan stadium if they return with another club against their old side.

It will be three weeks tomorrow since Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding were cleared of the rape of a woman in Belfast.

"I have my own views on that obviously, but I think someone from Ulster Rugby needs to come out and make that very clear".

In a press conference held today ahead of Saturday's PRO14 clash against Glasgow, Herring read out a statement on behalf of the province's players.

"The decision itself was probably the decision that had to be made, given the public pressure that was mounting and the sponsorship issue", he said.

Mr Logan insisted sponsorship money did not have any impact on the club's decision.

"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".

The Ulster supremo added that the morale in the team, which has been struggling this season, had also taken a battering.

"One, is to ensure that the existing reinforcement programmes that players receive and people across rugby receive are as effective as possible".
