Brumbies winger Henry Speight will join Irish province Ulster Rugby on a short‑ term loan contract.
Speight will move to Kingspan Stadium later this month in a similar deal to that which saw fellow Brumbies player Christian Lealiifano arrive in Belfast last season.
He will return to Australia on 31st December, in advance of the 2019 Super Rugby season.
The opportunity to play in the Pro14 and emulate Lealiifano played a large part in Speight deciding to head north for the loan spell.
Speight says this is a fresh challenge for him and he hopes to embrace it by relishing every moment.
