Premiership Side Hold Talks With Both Paddy Jackson & Stuart Olding

Premiership bound?

Multiple reports this evening are suggesting Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding have held talks about a potential move to Premiership side Sale Sharks.

Steve Diamond’s side are no strangers to signings ‘controversial’ players having signed James O’Connor from Toulon over the summer after his cocaine arrest, and Marland Yarde after his very public fall out with Harlequins.

They’ve also been linked with Israel Folau in recent days, after the Wallaby offered to walk away from his Australian contract, after refusing to back down on his homophobic religious beliefs.

Jackson and Olding were sacked by the IRFU and Ulster Rugby earlier this month, with a number of French and English clubs believed to be interested in their services.
