Ulster steal show with viral video after signing World Cup winning Bok
Ulster’s social media team were on form today when announcing the signing of South Africa’s World Cup winning tighthead Steven Kitshoff.
In what they revealed to be ‘the worst-kept secret in rugby’, Ulster announced the signing of the 30-year-old Bok with a parody of the famous business card scene in American Psycho. The prop will arrive from the Stormers after next year’s World Cup on a deal that will last until 2026.
Not a bad signing at all to make, and an even better way to announce it. Take a look:

Ulster head coach Dan McFarland said: “We are excited that a player of Steven’s quality has chosen to be part of the journey we are on as a club. As one of the best players in his position in the game right now, he will bring a world-class edge to our front row which will benefit our squad now, and in the development of our younger players as they come through the Ulster system.
“His set piece excellence and the physical edge to his play will, together with his winning mindset, be a real asset to us when he joins us next season, and we look forward to welcoming him to the province.”
Kitshoff added: “It’s clear that Ulster is on an exciting journey, and it’s one that I want to be a part of. With some big wins recently, it’s my ambition to be part of the squad that takes that next step and secures silverware for the province.
“I’m really looking forward to making the move to Belfast next year. It’s going to be a change, but I know, from everything I’ve heard, that when I line out for the first time in front of a home crowd at Kingspan Stadium in an Ulster jersey, it’s going to be a really special moment.”
