Surely this is because of the Welsh tv money?

Controversial view alert

Duane Vermuelen was pushed out of the Bulls because they felt that in Elrigh Louw they had a better long term replacement and they didn't want to interfere with his development.

Don’t worry we probably won’t bring him when we force the rest of those poor bastards on the plane and make them go to the hovels of Newport, Swansea etc

Will they allow him to invite his new team mates to an introductory braai?

I think that while it sounds like a good signing, he is a quality operator after all, the reality is he will be paid a tasty amount, and he is a 35 year old with a recent history of injuries. I am not sure you'll get more than 10 games per season out of him. Value for money, Kalamafoni at Scarlets probably a much better deal.

If he does go well though, then its great not just for Ulster, but the (terribly named) URC too.

Great signing for the Nordies.
Ulster always seem like they're just one big name signing away from winning some trophies.
Not sure this is the one but it will definitely improve their chances
