VERSATILE back Stuart Olding will not be joining Worcester Warriors this summer, insists director of rugby Alan Solomons.

The Ireland international has been linked with a move to Warriors after being recently sacked by Ulster.

Last month Olding, 25, and his Ulster and Ireland teammate Paddy Jackson, 26, were acquitted of rape following a nine-week trial.

But after an internal review into their conduct Irish Rugby Football Union and Ulster revoked their contracts.

Since then rumours have circulated over their futures, with a report in the Irish Independent suggesting Exeter Chiefs, London Irish and Warriors were looking at a possible swoop for OIding.

However Solomons said: "Stuart Olding is not coming here.”

Olding, who has won four caps for Ireland, can play at centre, full-back and fly-half but Warriors have strengthened those areas ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.
