Alison Miller has been named in the Irish Women's squad for Friday's Six Nations opener against England at Donnybrook.
The prolific winger, who broke her leg during last year's Six Nations win over Italy, takes her place among the substitutes.
The uncapped Linda Djougang, Anne Marie O'Hora and Kathryn Dane are also included on the bench.
Laura Feely replaces the injured Lindsay Peat as one of six changes from the team that lost to the USA in November.
It is hoped the experience prop will be fit to play against Scotland.
