Tommy Bowe: Wants to return to the international stage

Ulster wing Tommy Bowe is hoping his injury problems are a thing of a past as he eyes a return to the Ireland squad and winning domestic silverware.

Bowe endured a frustrating 2013/14 season as wrist and groin injuries restricted him to just 10 PRO12 appearances for Ulster.

Bowe's wrist injury also restricted him to two Tests for the Lions in their series win over Australia and he last played for Ireland in November.

But with next year's World Cup coming up, he is determined to return to the international stage.

"Being injured is by far the worst part of playing rugby," Bowe told the PRO12's official website.

"It's my 11th year. I was fortunate.

"I've had eight years of pretty much no injuries but the last years have been hell. Hopefully this is my year.

"It's the World Cup at the end of the year and hopefully I will get back involved in that and we'll see how we go."
