Ulster coach Mark Anscombe has revealed that Ireland flanker Stephen Ferris is making good progress following ankle surgery.

The 27-year-old, who underwent the operation to repair tendon damage in December, was expected to be unavailable for the Six Nations tournament that begins next month.

However, Anscombe told BBC Sport: "Stephen Ferris, mid-February, fingers crossed, all going well."

Ireland's campaign begins against Wales on February 2.
