Earlier: Sean O'Brien set for long-awaited start against Argentina

Sean O'Brien will make his first start in almost a year as Ireland host Argentina in Dublin this evening.

The British and Irish Lions flanker slots back into boss Joe Schmidt's first-choice Ireland back-row, with Munster men Peter O'Mahony and CJ Stander completing the loose-forward trio.

Full-back Jordan Larmour is bidding to build on his hat-trick in the 54-7 Italy thumping from last weekend, while Argentina have former Leicester flanker Pablo Matera as captain and Nicolas Sanchez are set to direct proceedings from fly-half.
