The serious stuff starts this weekend as Our Old Friends Argentina come to Dublin in search of a win over Ireland, given that the draw dictates that they can't get it in the World Cup quarter-final. If you aren't heading along to the Aviva - read on for details on where to watch Ireland vs Argentina.

Are Argentina in good form?
The Pumas had a decent Rugby Championship, but despite two wins, they still finished bottom of the table. They won at home to South Africa and away to Australia, and should have followed that up with a win at home to the Wallabies - somehow blowing a 31-7 half-time lead.
So, a reminder on where to watch Ireland vs Argentina - the game is live on RTE Two and Channel 4, with kick off at the Aviva on Saturday at 6.30pm. If you can't watch it - or, let's face it, if you can - follow it on Balls: we are live-blogging it and will have the best of the action and reaction.
