I see Bank of Ireland are using Ulster Rugbys players to showcase their bank and all the good they are doing for age grade rugby

This, same Bank of Ireland, that ruined the careers of Patrick Jackson and Stuart Olding

Bring them home

I'll bite:

So the player's actions had nothing to do with the situation?

How about bringing your employer's name into serious disrepute.

OK let's spend the summer relitigating this.....

Of course their actions initiated the situation. However the disproportionate reaction of the IRFU, driven by the undue strong arm tactics employed by BOI exacerbated the situation.

Slogan must have similar views to Folau. He had a moral objection to fornication and drunkenness.

I find it abhorrent that Bank of Ireland are still involved with Irish Rugby

Obviously we'll agree to disagree on the situation. Given the recent Folau and Vunipola cases, it's obvious employers have certain limits when it comes to the off-field actions of their employees. Especially so when said employees are in the public eye.

I understand the IRFU's actions, as I do those of Rugby Australia and the RFU. It's the flipside of the social media age.

Folau said all gays will burn in hell
Vunipola said women exist to have sex with men
Lawes comments seem to have been ignored
A Tongan this morning has said similar to Folau

Paddy and Stuart specifically did what John E?

Russ,

I've answered that question already. You may choose to believe their actions didn't bring the IRFU and Ulster Rugby into serious disrepute - and that is your choice of course - but I think their position was untenable conviction or no conviction.
