Marcell Coetzee has signed an extension on his contract with Ulster.
This is a major boost for the club after signing a new three-year deal to stay at the club till 2022.
Coetzee had a few problems with injuries the last two years but has come good again this season showing just how great a player he is.
Ulster confirmed the news of Coetzee’s deal to BBC Sport NI on Wednesday.
Head coach Dan McFarland described this as a major boost for the club to BBCSport.
“It’s a massive boost for us that he has chosen to remain at the club, even with significant interest from other clubs,” added McFarland.
“He’s been through some difficult times since he arrived here and I’m delighted that he’s got a good run of games and performed at the level we know he’s capable of.
“At 27 years of age, we believe we are yet to witness some of his best rugby.”
