Payne, 27, is in the Barbarians squad for their appointments with England on May 26, then the British and Irish Lions in Hong Kong six days later.

His new deal will keep him at Ravenhill until at least 2016, having joined Ulster from the Auckland Blues two years ago.

Ulster rugby director David Humphreys said: "Jared is an exceptional player who is as dynamic with ball-in-hand as he is rock-solid in defence.

"He is a hugely important member of our squad, and I am delighted that he has committed to Ulster for a further three years."
