Ulster's director of rugby Les Kiss has left the Irish province by mutual consent following the team's recent poor run of results.

The ex-Ireland assistant coach's final game in charge on 21 January saw Ulster exit from the European Champions Cup after a heavy defeat by Wasps.

An Ulster statement confirmed Kiss's departure and said head coach Jono Gibbes would take charge of the team.

Australian Kiss, 53, assumed control in November 2015.

That followed a short interim stint in the Ulster post the previous season following the sacking of Mark Anscombe in the summer of 2014.

In his first two years in charge, Kiss' side reached the Pro12 semi-finals but last season they failed to make the play-offs and their form has dipped further in the current campaign.

His contract was scheduled to run until the summer of 2019.

This has been coming for some time. He has never ever impressed me as a leader - very uninspiring.

There’ll be rejoicing in the virtual streets that lead to the Ulster fans’ forum.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.
