Roger Wilson has signed a new two-year contract with Ulster that will see him remain at Kingspan Stadium until the summer of 2017.

The 33-year-old, who can play anywhere in the back row, made his debut for Ulster in 2003 while he was named Ulster Player of the Year in 2004/5 and 2006/7. 

In 2008 he moved to the English Premiership where he made 117 appearances for Northampton Saints, winning the European Challenge Cup and LV=Cup. He returned to Ulster in 2012.

Wilson won his only Ireland cap in 2005 against Japan and this summer he played for the Barbarians against England and was selected in a World XV that took on South Africa in Cape Town.

Commenting on his new contract, Wilson said: ”Ulster Rugby is a great place to be right now so I am pleased to have signed a new two-year contract with the province.

“Physically, I feel that I am as fit and well as I have ever been and I am looking forward to making a big contribution over the next two years.”
