Ulster skipper Muller signs one year extension
Ulster have been boosted by the news that influential captain Johann Muller has agreed a one year contract extension which will keep him at the club until the end of 2013/14.
Muller, capped 24 times by South Africa, has been a cornerstone of the squad since his arrival in Belfast three years ago.
In his debut season he picked up the Supporters Club Player of the Season Award and the Ulster Rugby Personality of the Year Award.
The 2007 World Cup winner continued his excellent form the following season as he took over the captaincy and guided Ulster on another memorable Heineken Cup run, this time to the final at Twickenham where Leinster secured a third European title.
The 32-year-old, who has amassed 52 appearances for Ulster to date, is looking forward to another season at Ulster
“The contract extension has been in the pipeline for a while now and I’m delighted to get it signed,” Muller remarked.
“I’ve had a great time at Ulster so far, three years have flown by and I’m really looking forward to a fourth year.
“Ulster Rugby has gone through some wonderful times over the past couple of years and it’s brilliant to be part of that.
“The players and back room staff have done an amazing job over the past three years and it’s an exciting place to be.
“Everybody is really happy being part of this squad and this environment and I’m no different. We’re on the right track and hopefully we can keep on going and win some silverware.
“We’ve done brilliantly so far this season but the next 8 to 12 weeks is obviously going to define the season.
“The important stuff is coming up now. We’ve got the massive game on the 6th April against Saracens, but there’s everything to play for in the PRO12 as well.”
