Ulster's Kiwi fullback Jared Payne has signed a new three-year deal with the club that will see him remain at Ravenhill until at least 2016.

The 27-year-old, who joined Ulster from the Blues two years ago, was selected in the Barbarians squad to face England and the British and Irish Lions.

His first season with Ulster was cut-short after just three matches when he snapped his Achilles tendon, but he has been outstanding for them this season, scoring eight tries and adding considerable attacking flair to Ulster’s backline.

Ulster Director of Rugby David Humphreys said: "Jared is an exceptional player who is as dynamic with ball-in-hand as he is rock solid in defence. He is a hugely important member of our squad and I am delighted that he has committed to Ulster for a further three years."

Payne commented: "I am really enjoying my rugby here at Ulster so I am pleased to be staying for another three years. We have a fantastic squad of players and we play a great brand of rugby. It has been a successful season so far and hopefully we can finish the campaign off with some silverware."
