Ulster Academy Player Profiles

With the news released today that Angus Curtis and Tom O’Toole have been granted a development contract we thought it would be an opportune time to have a look at the players in the Ulster Academy. 

Curtis and O’Toole will remain in the Academy for this season before graduating onto a Playing Contract.

Players who have graduated from the academy this season are backrow Greg Jones, hooker Adam McBurney and scrum half Jonny Stewart who are now on Playing Contracts in the Senior Squad.
