Speight signs short-term deal with Ulster

Fiji-born Wallabies winger Henry Speight has signed a 6-month deal with PRO14 side Ulster.

Speight, 30, has been capped by Australia 19 times since making his debut in 2014 and was part of the 2015 World Cup squad.

"This is a fresh challenge for me and I hope to embrace it by relishing every moment and by adding value to the group as best I can. I can't wait to arrive in Belfast and get to work with my new teammates," he said.

The former Queen Victoria School (QVS) student who hails from Naivicula in Wainibuka, Tailevu will return to Australia at the end of the year, rejoining his Super Rugby Club- ACT Brumbies to make himself available for international selection.

Speight turned down big money offers from overseas to sign a one-year contracr extension with the Brumbies in March.
