Profile

Spence was called up to the Ireland squad to take on the Barbarians in May 2012, a year after earning his first call up to an Ireland training squad ahead of the 2011 Six Nations. The centre's promotion was on the back of some strong performances for Ulster but his career was tragically cut short when he died in a farming accident alongside his father and brother.
