Ulster have launched a new jersey and are also looking forward to seeing new signing Mark “Bart” Bartholomeusz in action next season. He is looking forward to playing in Ravenhill: “I am delighted to be joining Ulster this season, especially on the back of the Celtic League win. It will be great to be part of a successful team that appear to get on so well together. I have been to Ireland quite a few times on tours and have played at Ravenhill once already in 1994 with Australian Schools whilst on a tour of Ireland. When I was over last year with Saracens we all noticed how great the Ulster crowd was and I am excited about playing at Ravenhill.” – click here.
