Exeter Chiefs Respond To Reports Stating They Will Sign Stuart Olding

Chiefs.

Former Ulster and Ireland centre Stuart Olding is currently looking for a new club, after he and Paddy Jackson both had their contracts revoked by the IRFU on Saturday.

Both players were acquitted of rape last month, but both the IRFU and Ulster Rugby decided revoking their contracts regardless was the best course of action.

Jackson is reportedly in talks with French giants Clermont Auvergne, while Olding yesterday was linked with a move to current Aviva Premiership champions Exeter.

But now Chiefs’ forwards coach Rob Hunter has dismissed any links to the player.

“I can tell you what I know, which is absolutely nothing. It’s not something that we’ve discussed in the office,” Hunter told the club’s official website

“So, it’s another one of those where we’ve been linked to somebody but we’ve not spoken to an agent and we’ve not spoken to a player. It’s not on our radar at all.

“We get linked to lots of players, but it’s nothing to do with us really.”
