Bowe adds to Ulster contract

The good news for Irish rugby just keeps rolling in with Tommy Bowe signing a three-year contract extension at Ulster.

"It is an exciting time for both the province and the national team and I hope to play a part in achieving success on both fronts in the years to come," said Bowe.

The 30 year-old, two-time British & Irish Lion was at his best last Saturday, gathering in the match winning try against South Africa.

He follows the example set by Rob Kearney earlier in the week as Performance Director David Nucifora starts to make his mark as the IRFU's contract negotiator.
