There's a couple of injuries in the squad ahead of this match as Jamison Gibson-Park and captain Jonathan Sexton are both ruled out. Robbie Henshaw has been ruled fit to start the match as Ireland make four changes to take on the Pumas.

Argentina head to Dublin off the back of a good win against Italy. They took advantage of sloppy mistakes from the Italians but it was a rare pumas win in 2021. They lost all six of the Rugby Championship matches and lost to France in Paris the week before beating Italy. Mario Ledesma's men only win in 2021 came against a weakened Wales side in the summer.

This year has slowly turned into being a great one for Irish rugby and it will be fitting to end it off on another victory.
