Rory is right up there with the likes of Kyle, Gibson and McBride. Greatest Ulster player of the pro era. Just sorry he isn't going to see the season out and finish at Ravers.

BBC suggesting he will be available for the semi, should we get past the Westies.

According to a few news outlets he is hoping to be back for the Connacht game
You've got to get your first tackle in early, even if it's late.
