Robbie Henshaw is the biggest omission from Ireland’s matchday squad against Argentina after picking up an injury as Joe Schmit announced his team this afternoon.


Henshaw who picked up a ‘slight hamstring strain’ this week will be replaced in the centre by Munster’s Chris Farrell following his debut against Fiji last weekend, while Adam Byrne gets his international debut on the right wing.


Henshaw’s absence means 12 of the team that started the commanding win over South Africa earlier this month have been recalled including Rory Best who captains the side.

James Ryan also finds himself with his first international start partnering Ian Henderson in the second row with Devin Toner on the bench.

With Byrne’s inclusion, Andrew Conway finds himself on replacements duty while on the left wing Jakob Stockdale retains his place.
