Ulster centre Darren Cave has agreed a new two year contract with the club that will see him remain at Ravenhill until the summer of 2015.

A product of Ulster's Academy system, Cave has played 89 times for the province, scoring 20 tries since making his debut in 2007.

The 25-year-old has won three caps for Ireland, the most recent of which was an appearance off the bench against the All Blacks in last summer's tour of New Zealand.

He started the recent non-cap international against Fiji and scored a fantastic individual try in the 53 points to nil win.

Cave commented: "Signing this new contract with Ulster was probably the easiest decision that I have ever made in my life, especially at a time when the team have just won 12 competitive matches in a row.

"I honestly think that Ulster are going to win something between now and the summer of 2015 and I would never forgive myself if I wasn't around to be a part of that," he said.

Ulster's Director of rugby David Humphreys added: "I am delighted that Darren has committed to Ulster for a further two years. He is a highly dedicated player, who gives his all in both training and matches. Darren has been an important part of our success in recent seasons and the exciting thing is that his best years in an Ulster shirt are ahead of him."
