Ulster's clash against Zebre postponed


Rugby:Ulster’s Pro12 clash away to new Italian side Zebre on Friday night has been postponed as the province’s staff make preparations for the funeral of Nevin Spence.

The 22-year-old centre died alongside his father and older brother in a slurry pit on the family farm in Hillsborough on Saturday.

No new date has been set for the game that was scheduled to be played in Parma.

As a mark of respect, a moment of silence will be observed at all Pro12 matches this coming weekend.
