VIDEO: Ulster squad's reaction to Coetzee's Bulls move

REACTION: Flyhalf Ian Madigan revealed the Ulster squad’s reaction when Marcell Coetzee announced that he was heading back to South Africa to play for the Bulls.


Coetzee penned a three-year deal and returns to South Africa after five seasons with Irish club where he quickly became a fan favourite and mainstay in the starting line-up.

“Generally, when a player gets up and announces he is leaving, itโ€™s kind of a stoned silence and then you move on with the meeting. But he got a seriously big round of applause, which I thought was a lovely touch,” Madigan revealed in an interview.

“It was also a measure of the man he is and the respect that he had within the group.”
