The former Ulster and Irish out-half now playing for London Irish over in England is causing a lot of conversation on twitter this evening. Over an article written by Owen Slot in the Times the article reads that Paddy Jackson is the in form number ten at the moment and should not be over looked by the Irish management.
Slot says that keeping Paddy Jackson out is serving no one but teaching young men a lesson. A lot of people on twitter weren’t happy with this summary this evening.
Out of all the players to bitch about being in exile.
Paddy Jackson is getting on fine with his life while his victim lives every day with what he and the lads did to her. If he returns to the international set up I’ll seriously struggle to support the “Team of Us” team. https://t.co/tlJkVvkaS0

if you’re a man who makes excuses to support people like ronaldo and mcgregor or paddy jackson because of their ‘talent’ despite their behaviour towards women then you are also a fucking huge part of the problem and absolutely DO NOT get to contribute to this conversation.

Owen Slot is arguing for Paddy Jackson’s comeback in Irish rugby on the basis of a completely imagined, vague contrition PJ has never expressed. The message that this sends is that a man’s potential career is valued above all else. pic.twitter.com/f39PWpYVKS

Paddy Jackson should never have a place on a national team. No matter how fucking good you think he is.

Paddy Jackson turned 30 recently and was a hugely talented out-half, but I don’t think people in Ireland will ever forget the trial that went on up the North….
