Henry was a star for Ulster and a fantastic ambassador

Editor's Viewpoint

The retirement of the former Ireland and Ulster rugby player Chris Henry is an opportunity to pay tribute to him as an individual, and to his stellar career.

Chris has played for Ulster 184 times since January 2009. The next year he made his Ireland debut against Australia, and won 24 caps. He also made a significant contribution to schools and club rugby.

He has shown the highest professional and personal standards and has been described as "a fantastic ambassador for Ulster Rugby, who represents all that we stand for as an organisation".

What better tribute for a man who has served his sport and province so well?
