France head coach Guy Novès has added Camille Chat, Eddy Ben Arous, Bernard le Roux and Paul Jedrasiak to his squad ahead of facing Ireland.

Les Bleus take on the Irish at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Saturday, February 25, looking to back up last week’s win over Scotland.

Flanker Loann Goujon drops out due to injury as boss Novès readies his 24-man squad for a crunch game in their Six Nations campaign.

France are currently fourth in the standings, three points off leaders England, with victory in Ireland putting them right into the title mix.

France squad: Uini Atonio, Cyril Baille, Eddy Ben Arous, Djibril Camara, Camille Chat, Damien Chouly, Gaël Fickou, Kevin Gourdon, Guilhem Guirado, Yoann Huget, Paul Jedrasiak, Rémi Lamerat, Julien Le Devedec, Bernard Le Roux, Camille Lopez, Maxime Machenaud, Yoann Maestri, Noa Nakaitaci, Louis Picamoles, Baptiste Serin, Rabah Slimani, Scott Spedding, Sébastien Vahaamahina, Virimi Vakatawa
