France head coach has recalled both No 8 Louis Picamoles and hooker Dimitri Szarzewski to the squad for the final Six Nations match with Ireland.

France head coach Philippe Saint-Andre on Sunday recalled both No 8 Louis Picamoles and hooker Dimitri Szarzewski to the squad for the final Six Nations match with Ireland.
 
Picamoles earned a recall after being suspended on account of his disrespectful attitude to referee Alain Rolland in the game against Wales missing the 19-17 win over Scotland.
 
Szarzewski is recalled after recovering from injury and judging by the amount of lineouts the French lost against the Scots his more reliable throw in will see him start the game.
 
Scrum-half Morgan Parra was not so lucky as to be recalled, he was also suspended after headbutting an opponent in a Top 14 game between his side Clermont and Montpellier.
 
Parra was not considered for selection for the first part of the tournament as he worked back to match fitness after being injured.
 
France, who finished with the Six Nations wooden spoon last year, can still win the title if they beat the Irish, who top the table by virtue of points difference.
