Ulster Rugby apologises for controversial Twitter photo

Published 11/07/2014 | 09:54

Ulster Rugby have been forced to apologise following a picture posted on social media showing two of their Irish international players in controversial fancy dress costumes.

The picture shows Paddy Jackson and Chris Henry and two other unidentified men with their bodies and faces covered with black make up as part of a fancy-dress outfit.

The photograph was posted on Paddy Jackson’s Twitter profile where the four men posed as members of the Ethiopian team at an Olympics-themed party, with the out-half appearing with a chain around his neck and hands.

Ulster Rugby said the picture was taken two years ago and they "apologise unreservedly for any offence caused." The picture has since been deleted.
