Fly-half Billy Burns says he is “ambitious” to play for Ireland but is focusing on performing well for Ulster.
The 24-year-old former Gloucester number 10 has joined the Irish province on a two-year contract and is legible for Ireland through a paternal grandparent.
“You ask any player and the ambition is there to play at international level. First and foremost though I signed to play well for Ulster,” said Burns.
“I’m hugely ambitious and hopefully I can help Ulster push for trophies both in Europe and in the Pro14.
“The main thing for me is to play well week in, week out and see what comes off the back of that. I have some good competition in the form of Johnny McPhillips and Michael Lowry so I know I have to prove my worth.”
