Bishop Gets The Left Wing Berth

Justin Bishop retains his place on the Irish side for Saturday’s permanent tsb international against Argentina at Lansdowne Road (4.30pm).
With Denis Hickie ruled out through injury and his replacement, John Kelly also out of action, Bishop comes into the starting line-up as the only change from the fifteen that started against Australia. The injuries mentioned also mean one change on the bench with Geordan Murphy replacing John Kelly.

Bishop main contender for the wing position was Murphy, but Eddie O’Sulllivan has rightly stuck with the London Irish man after a very impressive display against Fiji last Saturday. Bishop will win his 23rd cap on Saturday and in an international career that began in 1998, all his caps have come in starting line-ups.
