Ulster scrumhalf Paul Marshall has signed a three-year contract extension that will tie him to Ravenhill until 2017.

The 28 year-old Ireland international is a graduate of the Ulster Academy and made his debut in 2006. He has since made 108 appearances for the province and represented Ireland at under-21 and senior level, after winning a first cap against Italy last season.

“When I was growing up, all I wanted to do was to play rugby for Ulster,” said Marshall today. “I have been fortunate over the past seven years to do just that and I am extremely pleased to know that I will be representing my province for at least another three years.

“To be able to play in front of friends and family is very special. I am passionate about playing for Ulster and I love what it represents. With the squad that we have at the present time and the redevelopment that is going on at the ground — Ravenhill is an exciting place to be.”

Ulster’s director of rugby David Humphreys added: “Paul is an extremely important member of our squad and I am delighted that he has opted to stay with Ulster for three more years.”
