Ulster have announced that international prop Jack McGrath will join the province for the start of next season.
The Ireland international will leave Inter-pro rivals Leinster to make the move to Kingspan Stadium.
McGrath has made over 140 appearances for Leinster but has struggled to earn regular game time following a series of injuries and the return to form of Cian Healy.

“This was a difficult decision but one I believe will put me in the best position to continue to perform at the top end of the game,” McGrath said.
“I have enjoyed a huge amount of success at Leinster, but I feel that looking beyond the World Cup to the next phase of my career, I will benefit from the opportunity within the Ulster environment.”
