When it came to Irish results in the Champions Cup this weekend, Ulster were the only side who came away with a victory.

But the 25-23 victory over Toulouse was not the only positive from an Irish perspective.

Former Ireland second row Trevor Hogan was on Off The Ball and described Ulster's as a dark horse for Ireland's injury-hit Six Nations squad.

"Alan O'Connor, what a potential dark horse for the Six Nations. Second row for Ulster [and] class," he said.  

Trevor, who was also joined by Gav picked out the performances of a couple of Munster players including a "brilliant" Mike Sherry and also James Cronin, who's showing he described as "one of the best loosehead performances I've seen".
