Social media had been sparked into action as Ulster supporters and dog-lovers alike helped search for the lost golden retriever.

The bonus for fans is that Charlie has been found ahead of tonight's crunch PRO14 tie in Edinburgh, no doubt a weight of Murphy's mind as he is set to start at Murrayfield.

The Ireland international, who signed for Ulster last summer from his native Leinster, had put out a plea for help on Friday morning after his dog went missing in east Belfast, having been struck by a bike.

"Charlie has gone missing this morning on the Comber Greenway just off the Sandown road," said Murphy.

"He was hit by a bike and bolted in the direction of Dundonald. He is wearing a multicoloured collar. If you see him or find him please call +44 7490 390839 or the number on his collar. Thanks"

The dog was marked as found shortly after 12 noon.

Ulster could seal a PRo14 play-off place with victory tonight but in a tightly-packed Conference B table, defeat could spell disaster for the side's hopes of more knock-out rugby.
