  • Argentina were clinical in their win over Italy last week after previously battling hard against England at Twickenham, only to lose out to Eddie Jones' men. The Pumas have never beaten Ireland in Dublin and will be looking to end their seven-match losing run on the road, and can take inspiration from their win over Ireland in the World Cup in their last meeting.
    '
  • Ireland have been in impressive form in the Autumn Internationals, hammering South Africa in their opener, while they overcame Fiji by a narrow margin last week. Joe Schmidt's men will be looking for another strong outing this afternoon against a tough Argentina outfit.
