MARCELL Coetzee may not appear on the pitch for Ulster for a while, but he completed his move to Northern Ireland as he landed in Belfast this morning with his wife Chanel.

The pair arrived at George Best City Airport this morning, where Ulster Director of Rugby, Les Kiss, greeted them.

The Coetzees travelled to Kingspan Stadium where they met a number of Marcell’s new team-mates, including fellow marquee signing Charles Piutau.

Rory Best, Andrew Trimble, Jared Payne and Sean Reidy were also on hand to greet the Springbok international.

The South African flanker signed for the province on a three-year deal from Super Rugby side Sharks, but is likely to be sidelined until the New Year after he suffered a serious knee injury in April.
