Ireland prop Tom Court has committed his future to club side Ulster after putting pen to paper on a two-year deal.
The 29-year-old appeared as a replacement in Ireland’s opening two RBS 6 Nations games against Italy and France but missed out on the win against England at Twickenham.
Court has been one of the corner stone of the Ulster pack as they challenge for a play-off place in the Magners League this season.
Scotland winger Simon Danielli has also signed a new deal with the club and operations manager David Humphreys is sure the duo penning new contracts are the sign of things to come.
“We are committed to building a team that will meet the expectations of many of the Ulster supporters,” said Humphreys.
“Retaining highly respected international players like Simon and Tom for another two years highlights the fact that they believe Ulster Rugby is on the pathway to success.
“They want to stay with Ulster and develop their potential along with our squad, and play their part in that journey to success in the future.”
