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

As already mentioned the IRFU and Ulster rugby cancelled both players contracts on Saturday and in a statement they 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".

While Jackson and Olding were cleared of rape, there was controversy over social media and text messages that emerged in evidence during the trial which many regarded as being misogynistic. That sums up how we all feel about it.

"In my experience the culture is actually very healthy and very good", he said.

"They have made a very serious mistake".

He insisted money did not drive the decision to sack the players.

"The position is joint".

"I hope that they will learn from that and I hope they fulfil their potential going forward", he said. While the men were acquitted unanimously by the jury, the public was divided.

"That is not something that is being envisaged", Shane Logan told the BBC about the possibility of the players being selected for Ulster again.

A former Ulster and Irish worldwide has called on rugby authorities to explain why they sacked Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding.

'But at the end of the day, having looked at all those things, the decision was based on alignment with what it is we stand for, in particular, the value of respect.

Jackson said he was "deeply disappointed" anout the outcome of the review, but he accepted that his behaviour had "fallen far short of the values expected of me as an global player, a role model for the game of rugby and as a son and a brother".

Ulster's Paddy Jackson, left, and Stuart Olding leave the field dejected after the game.

"From that point of view, there was no decision to be made".

"There is no question that all of us have been significantly affected by the charges and the staff".

"I think there is a sense among the fans that they have been left in the dark".

"We have got to focus on finishing the season as strongly as possible".

"The overwhelming sentiment is one of sadness".
