Dublin - Number eight Jamie Heaslip has been named in Ireland's 36-man squad for Sunday's game against England but will not feature in the match.

Heaslip will continue working on his back injury after joining up with the squad and the management team hope he will be fit to return for the game against Wales in Cardiff on March 14.
