: 11/10/2018 - 11:25

GAELIC GAMES

Moorefield, Twomilehouse, and Milltown prepare for Leinster action this weekend.

First up today, Two MileHouse take on Round Towers of Lusk in the Leinster Club Intermediate Football Championship Quarter Final in St Conleth's Park at 1.30pm.

Then in the junior, Milltown face Naomh Eoin in Hawkfield at 4pm.

On Sunday, Moorefield take on Portlaoise in the Leinster Club Senior Football Championship Quarter Final in St Conleth's Park at 1.30pm.

Kfm will bring you coverage of all of the action.

RUGBY

Rory Best will lead out an experienced Ireland side for this evening's test with Argentina at the Aviva.

The captains return at hooker is one of twelve changes from last Saturday's thrashing of Italy in Chicago.

Jordan Larmour has another chance to impress at full-back, while Jacob Stockdale and Bundee Aki are also retained.

Kick off at Lansdowne Road is at 6.30.

Ireland supporters may also have one eye on events at Twickenham this afternoon.

Next week's opponents the All Blacks go up against England from 3.

Elsewhere today, Wales face the Wallabies at the Principality Stadium.

Scotland face Fiji at Murrayfield.

And in Paris, France take on the Springboks.

SOCCER

Brighton could climb into the top half of the Premier League table with victory away to second-bottom Cardiff City this lunchtime.

At 3, Leicester play their first game back at the King Power since the helicopter crash that claimed the life of their owner and four others a fortnight ago - Burnley are the visitors.

Newcastle will look to build on last week's win over Watford when Bournemouth visit St. James's Park.

Buoyed by their first win of the season on Monday, Huddersfield entertain West Ham.

Goal-shy Southampton face Watford.

And in the late kick-off, Tottenham will look to extend their winning run to four-games in all competitions when they cross the Thames to face Crystal Palace.

GOLF

Shane Lowry will look to build on his impressive second round at the Nedbank Challenge today.

The Clara golfer tees off from 4-under par today, and starts his third round five-shots adrift of leader Sergio Garcia.

Rory McIlroy still has plenty to do, starting the day on 1-under.

While Padraig Harrington and Paul Dunne go out from 2-over and 5-over respectively.

RACING

Arkle-winner Footpad goes head-to-head with the Harry Whittington-trained Saint Calvados in the Grade 3 Poplar Square Chase at Naas this afternoon.

That's just one of an eight-race  card at the Kildare course, with the first off at midday.
