Donnacha Ryan back in the mix for Ireland
February 17, 2014
Fit-again Donnacha Ryan has been included in Ireland's 33-man training group for this weekend's Six Nations clash with England at Twickenham. But Leinster wing Luke Fitzgerald has failed to recover from a hip problem so will now miss the trip.
Ryan returned to action for the first time since December in Munster's game on Saturday having fully recovered from knee surgery.
Schmidt's extended squad shows few changes with Felix Jones, Fergus McFadden and Eoin Reddan available again after injury.
I Boss, G D'Arcy (both Leinster), R Henshaw (Connacht), P Jackson (Ulster), F Jones (Munster), D Kearney, R Kearney, I Madigan (all Leinster), L Marshall (Ulster), F McFadden (Leinster), C Murray (Munster), B O'Driscoll, E Reddan (both Leinster), J Sexton (Racing Metro), A Trimble (Ulster).
