Figure image
Leicester Tigers' Johne Murphy has been named on the wing for Ireland A as they take on the Argentina Jaguares in the first-ever international rugby match in Tallaght Stadium on Friday.

Murphy was on the bench in the 48-19 win over Tonga a fortnight ago and is brought in to start in place of Andrew Trimble.

The starting line-up contains seven full internationals and there are 13 players who were involved in the Churchill Cup victory during the summer, including Murphy.
