Ulster Rugby hooker Rory Best returns to the Ireland team for their clash with Argentina on Saturday, having sat out the 54-7 victory over Italy in Chicago last week. 

The 36-year-old – who has made 70 appearances for Ulster in the European Cup – also missed Ireland’s summer tour to Australia through injury but makes a return alongside Leinster Rugby props Cian Healy and Tadhg Furlong. 

Best is among an Ulster Rugby trio in Joe Schmidt’s starting XV, with lock Iain Henderson and wing Jacob Stockdale also impressing enough to earn a starting berth. 

Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt has recalled Leinster Rugby trio Johnny Sexton, back-row Sean O’Brien and centre Robbie Henshaw, who were all rested last week. 

Leinster full-back Jordan Larmour, who scored a stunning hat-trick in the win over Italy, keeps his place in the side with club teammate Rob Kearney out injured. 

Munster Rugby – who lead Heineken Champions Cup Pool 2 with seven points – are represented by back-row duo Peter O’Mahony and CJ Stander as well as wing Keith Earls, who is making his 71st appearance.
