British and Irish Lion Iain Henderson has been recalled to the Ireland set-up after a positive Covid-19 test last week.


There is also a call-up for Musnter loosehead Jeremy Loughman.

Ireland, who are coming off a victory over Italy, travel to Twickenham to take on Eddie Jones’ England this weekend.

Andy Farrell’s squad reassembled on Sunday night at Carton House following last week’s open session at Aviva Stadium and a number of players featuring for their provinces in URC fixtures at the weekend.

An IRFU statement reads: “Iain Henderson returns to the squad having completed 80 minutes for Ulster against Cardiff at the weekend. Jordan Larmour sustained a hip injury in Leinster’s game against Benetton and has been ruled out of the remainder of the 2022 Guinness Six Nations.

“Jack Carty, Dave Heffernan (Connacht), Craig Casey, Gavin Coombes (Munster) and Robert Baloucoune, James Hume and Nick Timoney (Ulster) all return to the Ireland squad having featured for their respective provinces.”
