Few surprises in Ireland team to play Argentina – Kick off 6:30pm Saturday

There were few surprises in for the Irish Rugby team to play Argentina at the Aviva on Saturday kick off 6:30pm

Joe Schmidt had one less worry with the news that Garry Ringrose was ruled out of the match after injurying his hip on Tuesday so its still up for debate if he start ahead of Bundee Aki at next years World cup.

Kieran Marmion looks set to be the second choice next year behind Conor Murray after the Connacht players got the start against the Pumas. Rory Best returns to lead the team in the first of the Guinness Series games.

Best missed out on Ireland’s summer tour to Australia through injury and was not part of the squad that travelled to Chicago last week.

Jordan Larmour is named at fullback for his first start at Aviva Stadium ahead of the rested Rob Kearney, his defensive work will be under huge scrutiny this week. He is joined in the back three by Jacob Stockdale and Keith Earls.
