Ulster Rugby and the IRFU have confirmed winger Craig Gilroy is to be the subject of an internal review.
Gilroy allegedly sent a WhatsApp message that used offensive terms about women, and was seen in evidence during the rape trial of Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding.
The message read “Any sluts get f*cked?”, and was referred to as being sent by ‘CG’ during the course of the trial.
In a statement on Tuesday evening, Ulster Rugby and the IRFU said Gilroy would not be available for selection this weekend, when Ulster play at Edinburgh in the PRO14.
“Ulster Rugby and the IRFU confirm that as Craig Gilroy is subject to an internal review, he will not be available for selection this weekend.”
Jackson and Olding were last week found not guilty of raping a then 19-year-old women in Belfast in June 2016. Both remain suspended as the IRFU and Ulster carry out a full review.
