NEWS: South African-born fullback Louis Ludik has taken a massive step in becoming Irish-qualified in 2017 by extending his contract with Ulster by a further three years.

The 30-year-old signed a one-year extension earlier this year but the new contract will now see him remain at Kingspan Stadium until 2020.

The versatile backline player joined Ulster from French side Agen in 2014 but is currently out of action due to a fractured cheek bone suffered in the game against Connacht earlier this month and he is likely to return by the end of November.
 
"I'm thrilled to be extending my stay at Ulster. Myself and my family really enjoy Belfast and we feel very much at home here. Everything about Ulster Rugby is first class; the stadium, the training facilities, the players and coaches, the medical care and the supporters.
 
"There is a brilliant vibe amongst the squad and everyone is working hard to try to achieve success this season. Once I return to fitness, I'm looking forward to contributing to the team this season and for the following three years," Ludick said.
 
Director of Rugby, Les Kiss, was understandably delighted with the news.
 
"Keeping Louis on our roster is a major boost for us. He is an outstanding guy who gives 100 percent to the cause and adds so much value both on and off the pitch. He is a great influence on the squad and he also does some great work in the local community.
 
"His form at the start of this season has been absolutely brilliant and I'm looking forward to seeing him deliver for us over the next few years," Kiss said.
