Ireland have named a 32-man training squad for their Six Nations Championship match against France at the Aviva Stadium with Ronan O’Gara being left out of the group.
Ireland have injury concerns over flyhalf Jonathan Sexton and have called up recent debutant Paddy Jackson and the uncapped Ian Madigan for the training panel.
Whilst Sexton is an injury concern he has been included in the squad as well as Mike McCarthy, Donnacha Ryan and Craig Gilroy.
Both Robbie Henshaw and Daren Cave were not considered due to picking up concussions while playing for their provinces over the weekend.
The other uncapped players involved are Leinster duo David Kearney and Eoin O’Malley, Ulster’s Robbie Diack and Tommy O’Donnell of Munster, with Diack’s provincial colleagues, Dan Tuohy and Andrew Trimble, also drafted in.
A full medical update will take place tomorrow at the Ireland team media session at 1pm, but none of the 32 members of the squad have been ruled out of contention for selection against France.
