ULSTER PROP TOM Court may have played his last game for his province after receiving a two-week suspension for the red card received in last Friday’s Pro12 defeat to Leinster.
Court was given a straight red card by referee Luke Pearce in the 17th minute of the inter-pro and faced today’s disciplinary committee for his use of a ‘lifting tackle’ on Devin Toner.

That ban will see Court miss out on the trip to face Munster this weekend as well as Ulster’s Pro12 semi-final on the weekend of May 16.
He could return to wear the red hand one last time if his team-mates can claim a victory away from home and progress into the Grand Final. That will be Court’s only hope of playing a 155th and final time for the northern province as he has agreed a deal to play with London Irish from next season.
