New Ulster deal for Payne


Ulster's Jared Payne is the latest player to commit his future to a new IRFU contract.

Payne has put pen to paper on a new two-year contract that will see him remain at the Kingspan Stadium until June 2018.

The 30-year-old made his debut for Ulster against Cardiff Blues in September 2011 and he has gone on to represent the province on 63 occasions, while the first of his 12 international cap came in the South Africa in November 2014.

"I am very happy to have signed a two year Irish contract to remain with Ulster Rugby. It has been an honour for me to not only pull on the Ulster jersey, but to represent Ireland as well. There is plenty for us to achieve at Ulster and with Ireland,” Payne said.

Ulster's Director of Rugby, Les Kiss, added: "Jared is an incredibly astute and intelligent rugby player. He adds experience and calm to any backline and he will continue to be an important player for Ulster in the years to come."
