Ulster have announced the signing of prop Jeffery Toomaga-Allen, who will join the United Rugby Championship outfit from Wasps.

The New Zealand international has put pen to paper on a one-year contract at the province as he’ll make the move from the Premiership for 2022/23.

He will offer a wealth of experience from his time at Wasps and before that with Super Rugby side the Hurricanes, who he won the title with in 2016.

Toomaga-Allen lifted the Junior World Championship with New Zealand in 2010 and then landed his All Blacks debut against Japan three years later.

“Jeff has played at a high level in Super Rugby and the English Premiership for a number of years and as such he will bring considerable experience to bolster our tighthead roster, as well as being a great mentor for the younger players in our squad,” head coach Dan McFarland told Ulster‘s official website.

“We look forward to welcoming Jeff to Ulster.”

Toomaga-Allen added: “I’m really excited about the chance to join such a great club as Ulster. I’ve heard the fans are amazing, and I can’t wait to get stuck into next season.”
