Andrew Porter and Robbie Henshaw are both in contention for Ireland’s upcoming Guinness Six Nations matches against England and Scotland.
Andy Farrell’s side were comfortable winners against Italy last weekend following a strong display on home soil at the Aviva Stadium, prevailing 57-6.
However, Porter was substituted early in the second half after rolling his ankle, while Henshaw did not return to the pitch after failing a head injury assessment.
Prop Porter has returned to light training while centre Henshaw will be back after completing return to play guidelines.
The return of Henshaw and Porter provides a significant boost for Farrell ahead of Ireland’s meeting against England on 12 March, with the head coach expecting a tough test against Eddie Jones’ side.
Farrell said: “We know that they’re going to come hard at us. Italy came hard off the line at times and we weren’t composed enough, so we need to be a little bit more accurate there.
“We know that they like to kick the ball for territory a lot, the same as what they’ve done for the last couple of seasons.
“I thought they were good [against Wales]. I thought in the first half they were very dominant as far as territory is concerned and they kept the scoreboard ticking over.
“They thoroughly deserved their half-time lead and I suppose there will be plenty for them to ponder on in the next couple of weeks, the same as ourselves.”
Elsewhere, Tom O’Toole is continuing his rehab at Ulster having previously been ruled out of Sunday’s win over Italy.
With Ireland not facing England until next weekend and Scotland the weekend after, Farrell has also released 11 players back to their clubs for United Rugby Championship action.
Jack Carty and David Heffernan have returned to Connacht while Jordan Larmour, Jimmy O’Brien and Ross Molony have returned to Leinster, and Craig Casey and Gavin Coombes are back at Munster.
Robert Baloucoune, Iain Henderson, James Hume and Nick Timoney are all back at Ulster.
