19/11/16 AUTUMN TEST SCOTLAND V ARGENTINA BT MURRAYFIELD STADIUM – EDINBURGH Scotland’s Greig Laidlaw (left) with Finn Russell at full-time

Ireland head to BT Murrayfield desperate for a response after their round-one beatdown by England at the Aviva Stadium. 

With injury concerns over the likes of CJ Stander and Devin Toner, Joe Schmidt’s team announcement at 1:30PM on Thursday afternoon will be eagerly anticipated. 

Gregor Townsend and Scotland are on a high after their bonus-point win over Italy to kick off the Championship put them top of the standings. 

They beat Ireland in this corresponding fixture at BT Murrayfield back in 2017 and their team will be announced shortly before Ireland’s at 1PM on Thursday before Townsend faces the media an hour later.
