Pool D was a walk in the park for Ireland with 4 straight victories and 2 bonus points collected including a dominant display to win 9-24 against France. Their first two matches delivered routine wins over Canada and Romania but they had to work harder to see off Italy’s challenge in their third match.

The win against France came at a cost, with captain Paul O'Connell, Johnny Sexton, and Peter O'Mahony suffering injuries.  Ireland are also without Jared Payne (foot) and Sean O'Brien (suspension).Jordi Murphy has been brought in at number six, while Ulster's Chris Henry starts at openside flanker in place of O'Brien. Sexton is expected to recover in time.

Argentina have looked strong in the Pool stage, losing by just 10 points to New Zealand before crushing Georgia 54-9, coming through a potentially difficult match with Tonga unscathed and scored 64 points against Namibia. Two of these wins came by bigger margins than the All Blacks did.

Pumas coach Daniel Hourcade has recalled fly-half Nicolas Sanchez after he was rested against Namibia with Juan Martin Hernandez moving to inside centre. They will be without Marcelo Bosch, after the Saracens centre was suspended for one week. Matias Moroni will be moved to outside centre on Sunday to replace Bosch. On-field indiscipline had also cost Los Pumas the services of lock Mariano Galarza who was banned for nine weeks after the match against New Zealand.

Ireland have a strong record against Argentina, winning all five matches since 2008. These two sides have faced each other three times in the World Cup, with Argentina winning twice and Ireland prevailing once. In 2007, the margin of victory was 15 points to the Pumas.
