ULSTER CEO JONNY Petrie this morning announced that the northern province have handed down a ban to a person who attended their Champions Cup win over Harlequins at the Kingspan Stadium this month.

Petrie tweeted that a complaint was made by supporters who attended the 7 December fixture and stated that ‘abusive behaviour will never have any place here’.

It is the second time this year that Ulster have issued a ban.

In January, the northern province launched an investigation that culminated in a ban for an individual over racist abuse directed at ex-Munster star Simon Zebo during the Champions Cup win over Racing 92.
