Best back for Ulster

Published 09/01/2014 | 13:27

Ireland and Ulster hooker Rory Best has recovered from his broken arm ahead of schedule to face Montpellier at Ravenhill on Friday night.

The 31-year-old's fitness will be a significant boost to Joe Schmidt's Ireland squad ahead of next month's RBS 6 Nations.

Ireland are due to name their Six Nations squad next week, and now Best has the chance to prove his fitness to win selection.

The 70-cap front-rower broke his arm in Ireland's agonising 24-22 defeat to New Zealand in November.

Best has found fitness in seven weeks, beating expectation, to return for UIster's Heineken Cup round five tie.

Best paid tribute to Ulster's medical staff in helping him make a quickfire return.

"I knew that it was going to be a tight ask to get back for these games," Best told UIster's official website.

"But it is testament to the medical team that we have here, Michael Eames the surgeon and the strength and conditioning coaches at Ulster that I am back.

"I have been fortunate that there have been no set-backs along the way and it has just been a case of trying to push on and thankfully I have come through."
