Three things about Tom ...

WITH John Afoa suspended, Tom Court assumes huge responsibility for Ulster's Heineken Cup showdown with Edinburgh on Saturday. Here are a few things you may not know about the prop, revealed in a recent interview with 'Rugby World' magazine.

1 -- His nickname in Ulster is 'Baloo' after the big bear in 'The Jungle Book'.

2 -- He used to play viola in the Queensland Youth Orchestra.

3 -- For superstitious reasons, he has been wearing the same pair of Speedos since he started playing rugby.
