Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding are due in court this morning to face rape charges.
The Ulster and Ireland rugby players have strongly denied the allegations made against them, with Stuart Olding's solicitor saying he “is anxious to clear his name in court.”
Jackson, 25, is charged with one count of rape and one count of sexual assault. Olding, 24, is charged with two counts of rape against the same woman.
The assault is alleged to have taken place in Belfast in June of last year.
Four men were arrested and questioned in relation to the incident last summer, however, they were released pending a report being submitted to prosecuters in Northern Ireland.
The two other men have been charged with lesser counts of exposure and perverting the course of justice.
The IRFU and Ulster Rugby have relieved the player from their duties until the court process is over.
