THE ALL BLACKS are currently taking on South Africa in the Rugby Championship and there was some bad news from the game for Ulster, as scrum-half Ruan Pienaar came off with a suspected knee injury.

The incident happened just before half-time following a New Zealand five metre scrum and Pienaar picked up the knock after colliding with team-mate Duane Vermeulen.

Ulster will be praying that it is nothing serious as the South African international has been an integral part of their side since his arrival in 2010. The All Blacks ended up beating South Africa 14-10.
