Ronan O'Gara has been dropped from the Ireland squad for next weekend's game with France. Declan Kidney has named both Paddy Jackson and Ian Madigan in his 32 man squad, while Jonathan Sexton has also been included, although he remains doubtful.
Here's the official Irish squad announcement. Interestingly there isn't any mention of O'Gara's exclusion.
A sad way to what looks like the end of a fantastic international career.
