Picking The Ireland Team To Take On Argentina This Weekend

Pumas Test.

Ireland got their November International Series off to the perfect start on Saturday night in Chicago – putting eight tries past Italy in a 54-7 win at Soldier Field.

A number of players impressed on the night including youngster Jordan Larmour, and Munster lock Tadhg Beirne, who made his first start for Ireland in the win.

This weekend’s Test however, will prove to be a much sterner fixture, with the Pumas set to land in Dublin. Joe Schmidt has already said he doesn’t expect any player to play all four Tests, so expect a raft of changes when he announces his team at lunchtime on Thursday.

A number of frontline internationals look set to come back into the squad, including captain Rory Best and World Player of the Year nominee Johnny Sexton.

Here’s the Ireland team we reckon Schmidt might select for the weekend.
