Big opportunity: Cormac Izuchukwu is relishing his chance at the Ulster Academy

As rugby inches slowly closer to a return to training, Ulster can already say with absolute certainty that at least one of their new Academy recruits hasn't spent the enforced break binging on the best and worst of what Netflix has to offer.

After a year and a half spent on the sevens circuit, lockdown has been the longest Cormac Izuchukwu has spent in the one place since his schooldays but, with no TV in his family home in Tullamore, County Offaly, the 20-year-old has mostly spent the long days running the roads and lifting weights, so much so that he's had to taper down his efforts for fear of over-training.
