Ledesma has named a side that will be captained by Pablo Matera and is notable for recognised second-row Guido Petti being named at blindside. 

The coach took the reins in August after replacing Daniel Hourcade and has named a back three of attacking potential in Emiliano Boffelli, Bautista Delguy and Ramiro Moyano.

Ireland ran out 28-19 winners when the sides met last November with eight of that Argentinian side – Boffelli, Moyano, Nicolás Sanchez, Santiago García Botta, Agustin Creevy, Matías Alemanno, Tomás Lavanini and Matera  – named to start on Saturday night.

This match kick-starts Argentina’s November schedule with a trip to Paris to face France on 17 November and a tie to take on Scotland in Murrayfield on 24 November.
