Speaking after both Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding had their contracts revoked at the weekend, Shane Logan said money or pressure from sponsors did not drive the decision to sever ties with the players.

“No sponsor including Bank of Ireland drove the decision,” he added.

“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.

“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.

“The players themselves admitted in their own statements that they were way short of what was expected of them.”

Whsked about the men’s chances of playing for Ulster again, Mr Logan said

“that is not something that is being envisaged”.

When he was asked about their chances of appearing for Ireland, he said:

“The position is joint. It’s a joint Irish and Ulster rugby position...The statement is clear and it is not something that we are contemplating.”
