Back rower Robbie Diack has signed a new three-year deal with Ulster that will see him remain at the province until at least the summer of 2017.
Robbie Diack joined Ulster from the Stormers just over five years ago and has become a highly important member of the Ulster senior squad. He made his 100th appearance for Ulster against the Cardiff Blues in May.
The 27-year-old, who can play anywhere in the back row, was born in Johannesburg, South Africa but is qualified to play for Ireland through residency. He was part of the Emerging Ireland squad that competed in the Tbilisi Cup in June.
Commenting on his new Ulster contract, Diack said: “This wasn’t a difficult decision to make. Ulster Rugby is an exciting place to be at the moment.
“We have made huge progress as a team, we have a new stadium and excellent facilities. I just want to play my part over the next three years and help Ulster pick up some silverware.”
