IN­TER­NA­TIONAL RUGBY, RTE2, SATUR­DAY 5.30PM

Ire­land seem to have a con­veyor belt of tal­ent com­ing into the in­ter­na­tional team over the last cou­ple of years with Ja­cob Stock­dale, Gary Rin­grose and James Ryan among them.

Last week­end Jor­dan Lar­mour took the head­lines with his try scor­ing ex­ploits against Italy in Sol­dier Field in Chicago.

The ac­tion is closer to home this week­end as Ire­land face Ar­gentina where Lar­mour will be tested de­fen­sively more than he was in the United States.

With Rob Kear­ney an in­jury doubt and the All Blacks loom­ing in the au­tumn series it will be in­ter­est­ing to see if his de­fen­sive skills are as good as his at­tack­ing prow­ess.
