Van der Merwe expects tough Toulouse test

Ulster lock Franco van der Merwe says a performance of "energy and passion" is required to secure a European Champions Cup double over Toulouse.

The Irish province hammered the four-time champions 38-0 at Kingspan Stadium last Friday with the return fixture in France on Sunday.

Van der Merwe praised the performance of second row partner Alan O'Connor, who made his first start in 11 months in the Belfast rout.
