Paddy Jackson will not play for Perpignan against Connacht this weekend in the Challenge Cup after the former Ulster outhalf was left out of the French side’s travelling party for the trip to Galway.
The game would have marked a return to rugby on Irish soil for the first time since his and Stuart Olding’s hugely publicised and controversial rape trial that ultimately led to both players losing their IRFU contracts.
The French side, who are without a win in the Top 14 this season, have named a 26-man panel without Jackson and will instead rely on back-up outhalves Enzo Selponi and Paul Marty.
