Ulster have confirmed the signing of Samoan international out-half Mike Stanley on a four month contract until the end of this season.

With Paddy Jackson (elbow) facing a spell on the sidelines, Stanley - who made his international debut against Italy last year -has been drafted in as a back-up to Ian Humphries.

The 25-year-old has been training in recent weeks with Super 15 Rugby side, the Chiefs.

"This is a great opportunity for me and a real privilege to play at such a great province like Ulster," Stanley said.

"I am looking forward to getting to know the boys and to have the opportunity to play with some real class footballers."
