Ireland’s preparations for Saturday’s RBS 6 Nations Championship clash with France have been hit by the withdrawal of Marcus Horan through illness.

Leinster prop Reggie Corrigan has been drafted into the squad as cover for Horan – and will start in his place – who is suffering from a ‘winter vomiting bug’ and is unable to travel to Paris.

Corrigan won the last of his 46 caps during the 2005 summer tour to Japan and was replaced by Munster front row Horan for the November internationals.
