Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt's named a 30 man squad for next month's tour to Argentina. Paul O'Connell, Jamie Heaslip, Jonny Sexton, Rob Kearney and Simon Zebo are all included in a squad that includes four uncapped players. No place for Leinster's Ian Madigan though while Sean O'Brien, Cian Healy, Gordon D'Arcy and Tommy Bowe are among those to be rested. Dave Kearney misses out through injury - the Leinster winger came off in the win over Ulster with a knee injury. Connacht scrum half Kieran Marmion's the only uncapped back in the squad. Munster prop James Cronin's also included along with Ulster pair Robbie Diack and Rob Herring. The first Test takes place on Saturday 7th June with the second test the following week.
