MUNSTER’S Donnacha Ryan has been included in Ireland’s 33-man squad ahead of this Saturday’s RBS 6 Nations match against England in Twickenham.
Ryan, who made his first appearance of 2014 in Munster’s 36-8 win over Zebre on Saturday, is included alongside six other Munster team-mates.
Dave Kilcoyne also returns to the extended squad but there is again no place for Simon Zebo despite scoring two tries for Munster in that win over Zebre.
Paul O’Connell, Tommy O’Donnell, Peter O’Mahony, Conor Murray and Felix Jones are also included.
Ireland take on England at 4pm on Saturday in Twickenham while Munster return to RaboDirect action on Sunday when they travel to Wales to take on the Ospreys.
