In pictures: Ulster captain Johann Muller says goodbye to Ravenhill

Loosehead prop Tom Court also took the chance to bid the northern province’s home fans farewell.

ULSTER CAPTAIN JOHANN Muller lined out for Ulster at Ravenhill for the last time yesterday evening in the 22-20 RaboDirect Pro12 defeat to Leinster.

While the result didn’t go his way, the South African lock took the chance to say goodbye to the home fans ahead of his retirement at the end of the current season. Muller’s performances on the pitch and influence off it have been vital to Ulster since he joined in 2010.

The 33-year-old has been one of the finest NIQ [non Irish qualified] signings made by any of the four provinces in the last decade. Now Ulster fans will hope he can sign off with a Pro12 winners’ medal.

Meanwhile, loosehead prop Tom Court also played his final home game for the province last night. The 33-year-old will move to London Irish in the summer, ending his eight-year association with the province.

The intelligent Australian native racked up 32 caps for Ireland during that time, as well as appearing for the British and Irish Lions during last year’s tour. Like Muller, Court will be dreaming of finishing his Ulster career with a Pro12 trophy.
