Ireland boss Schmidt to let Murray decide on surprise return

Ireland vs Argentina on TV: What channel is Ireland vs Argentina on today?

Potent centre Robbie Henshaw will also miss Saturday's crunch clash with a hamstring injury in a double blow to the hosts, but talisman fly-half Sexton insisted Murray was wise not to take any risks.

Joe Schmidt compared Six Nations Grand Slam champions Ireland to a vehicle which required a tune-up ahead of the mouth-watering clash with world champions New Zealand. His absence leaves Kieran Marmion, Luke McGrath and John Cooney battling it out to wear the number 9 jersey against the All Blacks.

Head coach Joe Schmidt revealed Murray would be allowed to make the call himself as to whether he was ready to take on the All Blacks in Dublin, and Ireland have now confirmed the 29-year-old will not feature this autumn.

Ireland coach Joe Schmidt believes the next two matches against the Pumas and New Zealand will see how far along the preparations are for the Rugby World Cup next year. "But if you're out for the period of time he has been out for, it would be a big step up".

"If Conor were to come back in, I have no doubt in my mind that he would be back firing on all cylinders if he steps back in to play", said Henderson.

"He's gutted, I'm gutted for him".

"Yeah, look, you do get a sort of feel for what you have to do to beat them but then you've got to go and do it", he said.

"I can't tell you what it is because I've got lots on my plate right now", he said.

"They'll be better for that experience as well".

"Look, I'm sure he'll bounce back quickly from it but he's obviously a loss". "I've had guys from New Zealand ringing me looking for tickets for the last six to nine months".

"I think the last few times we have played Ireland have been good test matches", Hansen added. We have had New Zealand on the radar for a while: you can't lie and say that it is just another game.

But Saturday's clash of the champions of their respective hemispheres could be one-sided if the Irish repeat some of the errors in Saturday's hard-fought 28-17 win over Argentina. Will Addison stepped in to make his first start and didn't let Ireland down, but Ireland will want to restore Ringrose with Bundee Aki.

"They're a quality team, they're going to at some stage have a purple patch, it's how we adapt and cope with them".

Schmidt said his players had to expect a major increase in intensity this week in a match being billed as an unofficial world championship between the champions of south and north.
