Commenting on Ulster Rugby’s new signing, head coach Matt Williams said: “Dan is an impressive young, Irish-qualified player.

“He has come through a strong academy system in the Guinness Premiership, and been constantly a first rate player.

“He has been on Ulster’s radar for a while now, and I am delighted we have finally signed him up.”

Meanwhile, Ulster have extended the contract of their Scotland international winger Simon Danielli by one year until 2010.
