Sponsor seeking talks with London Irish after they sign Paddy Jackson

One of London Irish's major sponsors is seeking talks with the club following their signing of Paddy Jackson.

Diageo say they have "serious concerns" over Jackson's signing which is "not consistent" with their values.

Last week, Cash Converters withdrew their sponsorship of London Irish, but say their decision had nothing to do with Jackson.

The former Ulster out-half was acquitted of a rape charge at a trial in Belfast last year.
