New regime: Ulster players returned to training yesterday with new measures to the fore

These are the images every Ulster Rugby supporter has been waiting to see since the season came to an abrupt halt back in March due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Ulster are back at the Kingspan and training again as a squad, though not quite as before with temperature checks and social distancing being part of the routine both on the training paddock and in the gym.

The players are now undergoing daily medical screening and assessment to ensure none are displaying virus symptoms, while cleaning gym equipment is also essential ahead of individual usage.
