Shane Logan expressed his condolences to Munster following the death of Anthony Foley

Ulster Rugby Chief Executive Shane Logan says he expects the visit of Munster to Belfast for a Pro12 match on 28 October to be “a poignant occasion” in the wake of the sudden death of Munster head coach Anthony Foley.

Logan revealed that Ulster would erect a permanent memorial to the former Ireland back-rower in the away changing room at Kingspan Stadium as a reciprocal gesture to that performed by Munster following the death of Ulster player Nevin Spence four years ago.

Foley, 42, died suddenly in Paris on Saturday ahead of a scheduled European Champions Cup game against French side Racing Metro 92.
