Ulster Are Bringing Marty Moore Back To Irish Rugby

Ulster Are Bringing Marty Moore Back To Irish Rugby
By PJ Browne Updated

Marty Moore's exile from Irish rugby will last just two seasons. Ulster announced today that they have signed the tighthead prop for the 2018 season.

Moore, who moved to Wasps from Leinster last season, will join Ulster on a two-year deal. The 26-year-old played 58 times for Leinster and won 10 Ireland caps before making the move to the Premiership.

He returns to Ireland to play for a director of rugby and head coach who both know him well: Les Kiss and Jono Gibbes. Moore worked with Kiss while on Ireland duty and Gibbes when he was Leinster's forwards coach.

Moore has made 34 appearances so far for Wasps. It is a time he says that he has enjoyed.

I'm really looking forward to the challenge of playing for Ulster and it will be brilliant to have the opportunity to work with a few familiar faces. I know a number of the players pretty well and they speak very highly of the professionalism of the club and the ambition that it has.

I've thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Wasps so far and I've learned a lot from playing in the Premiership against some quality front row combinations. I feel that experience will benefit me massively when I get over to Belfast next summer.

Moore's return will further bolster Joe Schmidt's tighthead options ahead of the World Cup.
