Ruddock called into Ireland squad
Rugby:With John Muldoon ruled out through injury, Rhys Ruddock has been drafted into the Ireland squad for this weekend’s match against Argentina. Muldoon sustained a knee injury against Fiji on Saturday and is expected to be sidelined for up to three months.
Jonathan Sexton, who strained a groin in the warm-up at Thomond Park and was taken out of the matchday squad, is expected to be fit for the visit of Argentina but will not train fully until later in the week.
Horacio Agulla, Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino and Juan Figallo have been left out of the Argentina squad for the final test of their European tour against Ireland next Saturday.
Agulla is the only one omitted through injury after he was concussed during the 39-22 defeat to France on Saturday following a clash of heads with Maxime Mermoz.
Coach Santiago Phelan has recalled star outhalf Juan Martin Hernandez, who has recovered from a knock he received during the 26-12 win over Wales the previous week. Santiago Fernandez and Maximiliano Bustos, who both play for Montpellier in France, have also been included
