One hundred fans bought an advert in the Belfast Telegraph calling on Ulster to reinstate the players who are suspended while their conduct is investigated by Ulster Rugby and the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU).

Fellow Ulster and Ireland star Craig Gilroy, who was not involved in the trial, is also subject to a review because he was the author of one of the offensive messages which referred to women in derogatory terms.

Jackson told the Press Association on Saturday he was "deeply disappointed" by the decision to end his contract.

A number of the club's main sponsors expressed concern at the fallout following the court case and called on it to conclude its review swiftly.

"Rugby Players Ireland acknowledges today's statements by the IRFU, Ulster Rugby, Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding".

The news followed a protest at Ulster's game with Ospreys on Friday evening, the club's first at the stadium since the pair were acquitted of all charges.

The rally was organised by Belfast Feminist Network.

Bank of Ireland has sponsored Ulster Rugby for 20 years and its logo is on the back of the first team shirt.

Meanwhile, Rugby Players Ireland also released a statement saying they acknowledged yesterday's statements by the IRFU, Ulster Rugby, Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding. "Such behavior falls far beneath the standard that your organizations represent and as such we demand that neither of these men represents Ulster or Ireland now or at any point in the future", the advertisement said. We expect this review to be robust, to fully address the issues raised, and that decisions will be taken - and policies and protocols be put in place - that fully address the issues that have arisen.

However, the pair were not without their supporters. I'd also like to thank Ulster and Irish rugby for the opportunities that they provided for me and I wish them, and all my former teammates, every success.

"Since I was a young boy it was my ambition to play for Ulster and Ireland and I am extremely proud, privileged and honoured to have done so".
