Jared Payne could make his return to Ireland for the Six Nations clash with Wales next Friday.
The Ulster centre recently returned to action after a kidney injury. Head coach Joe Schmidt has included Payne in the 36 man squad for the clash in Cardiff.
Payne came off the bench during Ulster’s 40-17 win over Zebre in the Guinness Pro 12 last week.
Schmidt has recalled in form Leinster out-half Joey Carbery.
He’s been playing at full-back for the province and has returned to form after recovering from an ankle injury.
Rob Kearney is an injury concern, but has been included in the squad.
