New Ulster challenge excites Australian out-half Sam Windsor

Sam Windsor is looking forward to a fresh challenge with Ulster and learning from experienced out-halves Paddy Jackson, Ian Humphreys and Ruan Pienaar.

The Australian, 27, signed a one-year contract with Ulster, joining from Worcester Warriors having previously had a short spell with Leinster in 2013.

The out-half, who is Irish qualified through his parents, described pre-season as "an enjoyable slog" and can't wait to play in front of the home crowd in Friday night's friendly against Leinster at Kingspan Stadium.
