Laura Feely has been called up to the extended 33 woman squad ahead of this weekend’s Women’s Six Nations clash with England in Leicester.
The Ballybofey woman returned to the squad for training in Dublin in preparation for Sunday’s fourth round game at Mattioli Woods Welford Road.
Ireland lost some players from the squad following a selection meeting between coach Greg McWilliams and Ireland Sevens head coach Aiden McNulty last week.
Stacey Flood, Lucy Mulhall, Anna McGann, Eve Higgins, Brittany Hogan, Amee-Leigh Murphy Crowe and Beibhinn Parsons have reintegrated back into the Ireland Sevens programme ahead of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series’ return in Langford.
As a result, Feely, along with Laura Sheehan, Mary Healy, Shannon Touhey, Sene Naoupu and the uncapped Leinster pair of Niamh Byrne and Alice O’Dowd have been called up.
The game is live on Virgin Media Two and BBC Two with kick-off at 12pm.
