Former Ulster Centre Stuart Olding Set To Face Irish Province

Friendly.

Former Ulster and Ireland centre Stuart Olding won’t have to wait too long before he comes up against an Irish province.

The 25-year-old recently signed a two-year contract with French PRO D2 side Brive, and they’ve organised a friendly game with Connacht on August 11 at Arnac Pompadour in France.

That game could also be Andy Friend’s first in charge of Connacht.

Meanwhile his former teammate Paddy Jackson looks set to join him in France, with the outhalf reportedly closing in on a move to newly promoted USA Perpignan.
