Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding's contracts revoked

Ulster and Ireland rugby players Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding have had their contracts terminated. Last month, the players were cleared of rape after a nine-week trial. In a joint statement on Saturday, the IRFU and Ulster said their contracts have been revoked with "immediate effect". While the pair were cleared of rape, there had been controversy over social media and text messages they had exchanged. Source: BBC News
