Rugby Union: Ireland v Argentina

1:30pm Saturday 24 November on BBC TWO

John Inverdale is joined by Keith Wood and Jeremy Guscott for live coverage as Ireland take on Argentina at the Aviva Stadium.

The Irish are currently enjoying a two-match winning run against Argentina, since the Pumas ended Ireland’s 2007 World Cup dreams in Paris at the group stage.

Both of those subsequent Irish victories have come in front of their passionate home fans – the most recent being a 29-9 victory in November 2010, with Jonathan Sexton’s boot contributing 17 points to add to tries from Stephen Ferris and Gordon D’Arcy. In total, Ireland have hosted Argentina on six previous occasions and have never lost to them on home soil. The Pumas, who went on to finish third in the 2007 World Cup, are always a physical threat and should pose a difficult hurdle for Declan Kidney’s men to negotiate.

Commentary comes from Andrew Cotter and Phillip Matthews.
