South African international scrum-half Ruan Pienaar has signed a three-year contract extension with Ulster.

"I am delighted to be staying at Ulster," he told the team's official website. "I have really enjoyed my first three seasons at the Province and I am looking forward to helping the team compete for silverware in the coming years."

Pienaar has won 71 caps for South Africa following his debut in 2006.
