Tim Barker is returning to Ulster
Ulster have confirmed that Glasgow second row Tim Barker has signed a two-year contract with the club and will be returning ahead of next season.

The lock forward has been in impressive form for the Warriors this season after joining from Ulster.

So not only do we have to contend with fears that we're goning to be used as a development team in Scotland, it now seems we're a development team for the Irish!!

All the best to Tim he's put his heart and sole into his rugby this year and a longer term contract all be it with Ulster is what he deserves. Good luck.

I am very sorry to see Tim go but there may be a positive note to this. Tim isn't qualified to play for Scotland. The SRU may have decided that the only non-qualified Scots will be those of genuine quality as opposed to genuine potential. Let's see who his replacement is.

I am sorry, but in my opinion Tim has proven that he is 'genuine quality' and will be a big loss to the team. Will his replacement be of the same calibre, well we lost sean lamont and got hefin o'hare....need I say any more?

Sorry, by genuine quality, I meant an established internationalist. Tim has had an excellent season.
