International tighthead prop, Marty Moore has signed a two-year contract extension at Ulster.

The man once dubbed as Mike Ross's natural successor for Ireland has had to come through disappointments, often triggered by injury, to become first choice at the Northern Province after spells with Leinster and Wasps.

"I've settled in really well at Ulster and have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the club," he said.

"Working with the coaches and wider support staff, I feel like I still have a lot of potential to improve, and I’m enjoying that process.

"We’re a club with big ambitions and I’m looking forward to playing my part in helping to achieve those."

Head Coach, Dan McFarland said of the deal, "Marty has been a great addition to the squad. His ability and experience at set piece time has been demonstrated time and again, and has helped all our props make significant progress.

"His performances over the last two games have been excellent and he is keen to keep developing as part of our squad going forward."
