Head coach Eddie O'Sullivan has recalled eight players to Ireland's training squad for their RBS 6 Nations match against France in Paris.
The eight players - forwards Reggie Corrigan, Mick O'Driscoll, Anthony Foley and Neil Best, plus backs Denis Hickie, Girvan Dempsey, John Kelly and Barry Murphy - were all named in Ireland's original RBS 6 Nations party but omitted from the squad which beat Italy.
O'Sullivan has no major injury concerns following the 26-16 victory.
Lock Paul O'Connell has a bruised hip, and number eight Denis Leamy suffered a dead leg - but neither problem is serious enough to keep the players from training.
Mako Vunipola may be his rival for a starting spot in England's front row but Joe Marler is ecstatic to have his fellow loosehead back in the international fold - claiming it will spur him on to even greater heights.
