Scrutiny: Nick Williams

Ulster have launched an investigation into the "alleged unauthorised absence" of number eight Nick Williams.

Williams has been made unavailable for Friday's clash with the Dragons, having previously returned to his native New Zealand and missed Sunday's victory over Treviso.

"Nick Williams is unavailable for selection for Friday night's match against Newport Gwent Dragons due to an internal investigation into alleged unauthorised absence," said an Ulster statement.

"Ulster Rugby will make no further comment on the matter at this time."
