In my post last week Stephen Ferris Returns - Let's Use Him Wisely I talked about the need to protect Ferris to extend his career as long as possible and the idea of using him like the Wallabies used to use big Willie Ofahengaue!
This video clip shows Ferris enter the arena in the 63rd minute and this is his very first play after a 15 month absence. Pretty impressive stuff. I think the Ulster fans would be happy to have this from minute one but in the interests in protecting Ferris, (and the opposition!) coming on at 60 minutes for Ulster and Ireland could be a real game changer.
