Exeter say they have not discussed a move for Stuart Olding

Aviva Premiership leaders Exeter have dismissed reports linking them with a move to sign former Ulster and Ireland centre Stuart Olding.

Forwards coach Rob Hunter insisted Olding is “not on our radar at all”, following Exeter’s 45-5 league win at London Irish on Sunday.

Paddy Jackson and Olding had their Ulster and Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) contracts revoked on Saturday, following an internal review into their conduct.

The duo were acquitted last month of raping the same woman after a high-profile Belfast trial.

Asked to comment on reports linking Olding with the Chiefs, Hunter replied: “I can tell you what I know, which is absolutely nothing.

“It’s not something that we’ve discussed in the office.

“So, it’s another one of those where we’ve been linked to somebody but we’ve not spoken to an agent and we’ve not spoken to a player.

“It’s not on our radar at all.

“We get linked to lots of players, it’s just not on our radar, it’s nothing to do with us really.”
