Ulster Rugby have today signed one of the biggest names in world rugby, Duane Vermeulen, who will join the province following the autumn Tests in November.
Nicknamed the Thor of rugby, the 6ft 4in, 18-stone Springbok will pull on the famous white jersey at Kingspan Stadium until 2023.
In 2019, Vermeulen was crowned the player-of-the-match as South Africa stormed their way to Rugby World Cup glory, lifting the Webb Ellis trophy.
The 35-year-old back rower brings with him experience gained in both Super Rugby and the Top 14. He will join the United Rugby Championship in November once he has completed international duties during the autumn Tests.
