Ulster look set to confirm the signing of Australia fly-half Christian Lealiifano ahead of the new PRO14 season.

The 29-year-old has won 19 caps for the Wallabies and recently returned to the game after recovering from leukaemia.

He’ll fill the gap left by Paddy Jackson, who has stepped aside from playing pending legal proceedings.
