A 29 man squad has been called into Irish camp in preparation for the game against Scotland next weekend in the Six Nations Championship.

Chris Henry is included after suffering a knee injury and will undergo a scan Monday afternoon.

Luke Marshall suffered bruising to his thighs, but the injury was not enough to rule him out of inclusion in an Ireland Six Nations squad for the first time after being unavailable for the opening weeks of the championship with a finger injury.

In addition to Marshall, back row James Coughlan and second rows Lewis Stevenson and Devin Toner come into the Irish squad as extra cover, after being involved in the early preparations of the championship.

The panel could have extra players added to it after further medical reports and the final squad will assemble in Carton House Monday.
