Court to leave Ulster

Ulster have confirmed that loosehead prop Tom Court will leave the club at the end of this season after agreeing a long-term contract with an unnamed Aviva Premiership side.

Court joined Ulster in 2006 and has won 32 international caps for Ireland and also played for the British and Irish Lions this summer.

The 33-year-old told "I feel that this is the right decision with regards to me and my career at this stage.

"It is going to be very sad when the time comes to actually leave and finish up, but there is a lot of rugby left for me with the Province.

"There are six months remaining of this season, so there is even more motivation for me to make the most of it while I am here and to try and help Ulster win something."
