Warwick Signs First Senior Contract With Ulster

Ulster Rugby have announced that loosehead prop Andrew Warwick has signed his first senior contract with the province.

Andrew Warwick has agreed a two-year deal that will see him remain at Kingspan Stadium until at least the summer of 2017.

It is just nine months since the graduate of the Hughes Insurance Ulster Academy made his debut for the province as a second half replacement against Cardiff Blues at the Arms Park in March.

Since then, the 23-year-old Ballymena man has become a key member of the squad, making 16 appearances for Ulster eight of which have been starts. He previously represented both Ulster Schools and the Ulster Under-20s.

Commenting on his new contract, Warwick said: “When I joined the Academy my aims were to play for the first team and to sign a professional contract with Ulster. I am delighted now to have achieved both those things.

“The past nine months have been incredible. I am extremely proud to represent Ulster and I look forward to helping the team be successful in the coming seasons.”

Ulster’s team manager Bryn Cunningham added: “Andrew has made the step up from Academy prospect to first team regular with ease and he is now a highly important player for us in a key position.

“It is crucial for Ulster Rugby moving forward that we retain a core group of homegrown talent who possess an ambition that fits in with our culture. Andrew is one of those players and we are delighted he has committed to two years.”
