Muller commits to another year
Ulster skipper Johann Muller will extend his stay at Ravenhill for another season and will make his long-awaited comeback from injury this Friday when the Pro12 table-toppers take on the Ospreys at Ravenhill.
Originally, Muller (right) had intended to finish his career with Ulster at the end of the current season and head back home to Mossel Bay on South Africa's Eastern Cape to help his father and brother run the family farm, where he was building a new house.
However, after taking over some of the coaching duties, 32-year-old Muller is keen to stay until the end of the 2014 season to see through some of the work that his brand of leadership has produced.
Ulster will have a number of their internationals back on duty, but will not know how many until later in the week when injuries will be fully assessed.
