Louis Picamoles has been recalled to the France squad ahead of next Saturday's Six Nations closing fixture against Ireland, with Dimitri Szarzewski and Bernard Le Roux also coming back into contention.
Philippe Saint-Andre made the decision to suspend Picamoles from his squad for Saturday's trip to Edinburgh after he sarcastically clapped referee Alain Rolland during the loss to Wales, but he will return for the finale. However, there is no place in the squad for Morgan Parra despite his two-week ban for a headbutt coming to an end this weekend.
France host Joe Schmidt's Ireland with their chances of winning the Six Nations title still intact, but must win and hope England lose in Italy if they are to claim the championship.
