Michael Allen: Has scored two tries in 13 appearances for Ulster
Ulster have handed a two-year senior contract to academy star Michael Allen.
The 22-year-old has progressed through the ranks to make 13 appearances for the province, scoring two tries.
And Allen, who made his debut against Leinster in 2011, is pleased to have committed his future to the Ravenhill club.
"Signing a senior contract with Ulster has been an ambition of mine ever since I joined the academy, so I am delighted to have fulfilled that goal," he said.
"I have enjoyed being part of the set-up and playing so many games this season. Ulster is my home Province, it's where I grew up and it's where my friends and family live, so it means a great deal to wear the shirt.
"I look forward to helping Ulster be successful over the next two years."
