Leinster Lock Nagle Joins Ulster On Loan

Ulster Rugby have confirmed that second row Ian Nagle has moved on loan to the province from Leinster until the end of the 2018/19 season. He will join the squad this week.

Ian Nagle started his career with his native Munster and also enjoyed spells in England with Newcastle Falcons and London Irish, either side of a sabbatical from rugby, before moving to Leinster in summer 2016.

The 30-year-old second row also has international experience, having represented the Ireland Wolfhounds and Emerging Ireland, and trained with the Ireland senior squad.

Welcoming Ian to Dan McFarland’s squad, Bryn Cunningham, Ulster’s operations director, said: “We are delighted to have Ian on board for the remainder of the season. With the recent retirements from our squad, we clearly needed extra cover in the second row department.

“To get someone of Ian’s experience and quality, who is Irish-qualified and available at this stage of the season, is extremely pleasing.”
