Ulster 'have to accept' Pienaar exit

South African scrum-half Ruan Pienaar is to leave Ulster at the end of the season when his contract runs out after seven years with the club.

Ulster rugby's chief executive Shane Logan says the province did everything in its power to retain Pienaar after this season but understands the IRFU's predicament.

"We are allowed only five players who aren't qualified to play for Ireland," Mr Logan told BBC Sport NI's Mark Sidebottom.
