: 11/08/2018 - 15:35

Ireland coach Joe Schmidt has made 12 changes to his side for Saturday's test with Argentina at the Aviva.

Jordan Larmour continues at full-back, with Rob Kearney ruled out with a shoulder injury.

Jacob Stockdale retains his place on the wing, with Bundee Aki continuing at inside centre and partnered by Robbie Henshaw.

Keith Earls, Jonathan Sexton and Kieran Marmion all come into the backs.

And there's an all-new pack, with captain Rory Best joined in the front row by props Cian Healy and Tadhg Furlong.

James Ryan partners Iain Henderson in the second row.

And there's a 127-caps worth of experience among the back row with Peter O'Mahony, Sean O'Brien and CJ Stander all returning.

Meanwhile, Schmidt says injured pair Kearney and Garry Ringrose will be fit for the visit of the All Blacks.
