Ulster scrum-half Ruan Pienaar will not return to action against Munster on Friday, with the South African ruled out of the derby match.

Ulster scrum-half Ruan Pienaar won’t return to action against Munster this Friday, with the South African ruled out of the Guinness PRO12 match.

Pienaar, who injured his knee while on Bok duty versus New Zealand in the Rugby Championship, has been sidelined since that game in September.

According to BBC Sport, the clash with Munster comes a week too soon for the number nine as European Champions Cup action is more likely.

Ulster are currently without several players due to injury as this week Pienaar’s half-back partner Paddy Jackson joined those unavailable after he sustained an AC joint sprain to his right shoulder.
