Back in the summer of 2016 when Angus Lloyd took Ulster up on their offer of a development contract, the Dubliner made the tough decision to put his medical studies on hold.

By that stage, the dream of playing professional rugby had been parked, but when given a second chance, Lloyd grabbed it with both hands.

Had that opportunity not presented itself, he would now be working in the fight against Covid-19, but the deferred year means that he is due to sit his final exams next week.
