Ireland tight-head prop Martin Moore will make a sensational return to Irish rugby by joining Ulster on a two-year deal in the summer.

The attraction of working again with former Ireland defence coach Les Kiss and former Leinster forwards coach Jono Gibbes are crucial factors in the transfer. 

"I'm really looking forward to the challenge of playing for Ulster and it will be brilliant to have the opportunity to work with a few familiar faces," said the 26-year-old.

"I know a number of the players pretty well and they speak very highly of the professionalism of the club and the ambition that it has.

"I've thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Wasps so far and I've learned a lot from playing in the Premiership against some quality front row combinations.

"I feel that experience will benefit me massively when I get over to Belfast next summer."
