Ireland's pulsating victory over the All Blacks last weekend is one that will live long in the memory, and they'll want to keep their standards sky high and put on another show to close out the season.

Johnny Sexton has been ruled out with knee and ankle injuries, as has fellow half-back Jamison Gibson-Park in a major double-blow to Andy Farrell.

Their absences may just give Argentina a glimmer of hope, the team having finally snapped a seven-match losing streak with a resounding 37-16 victory over fellow strugglers Italy last weekend.

They held their own for much of their encounter with France a fortnight ago too, and their record against Ireland is surprisingly respectable.

Can they spoil the Irish party? Follow our guide as we explain all the ways to get a rugby live stream and how to watch Ireland vs Argentina for FREE.
