SQUAD ANNOUNCEMENT:  Racing 92 backs Brice Dulin and Henry Chavancy were amongst seven players added to France's initial Six Nations squad for next Sunday's clash with Ireland in Dublin.

Dulin, who has 25 caps, earned his recall after an impressive display in Saturday's 33-25 win over Brive in the Top 14, having been overlooked for the start of the Six Nations.

Dulin had not been selected after traces of the banned substance higenamine were discovered in a drugs test. Higenamine is used to treat asthma and is also a fat burner which can be found in food supplements.

Chavancy, meanwhile, had been called into the French squad for the first time last month following the Achilles injury suffered by first-choice centre Wesley Fofana.

However, the following day the 28-year-old Chavancy was forced to withdraw to be replaced by Toulon's Mathieu Bastareaud.

France Squad:

Forwards: Uini Atonio, Cyril Baille, Eddy Ben Arous, Camille Chat, Guilhem Guirado, Christopher Tolofua, Rabah Slimani, Mohamed Boughanmi, Paul Jedrasiak, Yoann Maestri, Julien Le Devedec, Sébastien Vahaamahina, Louis Picamoles, Kevin Gourdon, Damien Chouly, Bernard Le Roux, Charles Ollivon

Backs: Maxime Machenaud, Baptiste Serin, Camille Lopez, Jean-Marc Doussain, Rémi Lamerat, Gaël Fickou, Henry Chavancy, Mathieu Bastareaud, Yoann Huget, Djibril Camara, Noa Nakaitaci, Virimi Vakatawa, Scott Spedding, Brice Dulin
