Luke Marshall has signed a new three-year contract with Ulster that will keep him at Ravenhill until at least the summer of 2016, writes Conor George.

The 22-year-old made his debut for Ireland in this season's Six Nations and has won three Test caps.

He has played just 16 times for Ulster this season because of a series of injuries and concussions but has established himself as one of the most important players in the squad.

Marshall (pictured) has also represented Ireland at U-20 level and is a graduate of the Ulster Academy. "I am delighted to be staying with Ulster. I have really enjoyed my rugby this season and I am looking forward to August already and to getting back out onto the pitch," he said.

"We have a fantastic squad here at the club and I am pleased that I will be part of it for the next three years."

His season was cut short after he suffered three concussions in successive games for country and province, and he will miss Ireland's tour of North America in the summer as a result.
