    South African born but Irish qualified, Rob joined Ulster Rugby at the start of the 2012/13 season. Since then he has been working very closely with former Ireland hooker and Ulster scrum coach Allen Clark who has been impressed with his output.

    He has proved a capable stand-in for Ulster when Rory Best has been away with Ireland in the past, and those solid performances have earned him a call-up to the 2014 Ireland 6 Nations squad.

    A powerful scrummager and an impressive lineout thrower, Herring who came through the London Irish academy is a typical robust South African forward whose no compromise attitude on the park have already made him a fans favourite in Ravenhill
