Exiles Target Paddy Jackson

Exiles Target Paddy Jackson

Former Ulster and Ireland fly-half Paddy Jackson is set to join Championship club London Irish from Perpignan next season.

The 27-year-old is believed to have agreed a deal to join the English Championship leaders, who are on course for promotion to the Premiership next season.

The fly-half had his contract revoked by the Irish Rugby Football Union last year with his former Ulster coach Les Kiss and Ireland coach Declan Kidney are in charge at London Irish.

Jackson later signed for the Top 14 club, with Olding agreeing a deal with another French club Brive.

With Perpignan set for relegation after a poor season, having yet to win a Top 14 game this season, Jackson is understood to have turned down the offer of a contract extension.

According to reports, the Exiles are in pole position to sign the flyhalf despite approaches from other Top 14 clubs.
