The 27-year-old will join the province on a two-year deal.

Ludik, who has played for the Sharks and Golden Lions, has racked up 76 Super Rugby matches and comes to Ulster Rugby from French Pro D2 side Agen.

"When I heard that there might be a chance to join Ulster I was very excited as it is a Province with a great history and proud fans," he said.

"I watched a few Ulster games this season and I was really impressed by the passion and character that the team showed. The Ulster backline is packed full of top international players and it will be a challenge for me to try and break into the team.

"However, driving yourself to be better is what top-class rugby is all about and I hope that with hard work and determination that I will be able to play a big role for Ulster over the next two seasons."
