ULSTER HAVE CONFIRMED the signing of Wallabies and Brumbies second row Sam Carter.
Following reports linking the 29-year-old to a deal with the province in The Canberra Times and The42, Carter is now set to join Dan McFarland’s side this summer.
Carter, who is out of contract at the end of the 2019 Super Rugby campaign, has won 14 caps for Australia after making his debut in 2014.
The son of former Wallaby David Carter will be an experienced second row option for Ulster, with Iain Henderson often away on Ireland duty or sometimes being rested under the IRFU’s player management programme.
Carter made his debut for the Brumbies in 2011 and he became just the twelfth player to make 100 appearances for the club in 2018. To date, he has earned 105 Super Rugby caps.
