Ruan Pienaar’s Family Moves Back To Belfast Home


Montpellier boss Mohed Altrad has revealed that Ruan Pienaar’s family have indeed moved back to Belfast, and they did it on on the day of the French Top 14 final.

Altrad however, insists Pienaar has a year to run on his current contract with the French giants, despite the South African being linked with a return to Ulster as early as next season.

Apparently Francois Steyn’s family also moved to Belfast along with the Pienaar’s, with the two Springboks now sharing a home in France together.

Ulster today revealing their coaching ticket is now complete with the appointment of Daniel Soper as their new skills coach. This means Pienaar likely won’t join their coaching ticket ahead of next season, but is expected to join in 2019.

Unless perhaps Ulster will indeed try to sign him back as a player to fill in at ten, if Montpellier and the IRFU allow it.
