Ireland see off Argentina in rugby Test

11 November 2018

The hosts were all over the place just after the quarter of an hour mark as the Pumas' vibrant backline ran them ragged ending with young wing Bautista Delguy going over in the corner for his first Test try. "We know we are going to have to be a lot better".

"The Irish mentality in the past has been about downplaying our chances, shying away".

Argentina should provide a testing examination provided they are not too exhausted having come out of the Rugby Championship with two victories under new head coach Mario Ledesma, including their first in Australia since 1983.

The score finished 43-20 in Principality Stadium and it was one of the worst days in Irish Rugby history, never had the country been more hopeful of World Cup success.

The former Leinster man was also quick to refer to crucial games he featured in against the Pumas, most notably the World Cup defeats in 1999 and 2007, outlining that he still feels the effects of what underestimating Argentina can do.

"There's got to be a degree of consideration for getting the best players on the pitch, and maybe that's what Mario's looking for, with Guido Petti in the back-row, with Alemanno and Lavanini at lock this weekend", said Ireland boss Schmidt. That match finished 30-15 in favour of the South American side.

In Beat Saber , you can start from any part of the level or even slow the game to practice problematic parts. Beat Saber will even have a one saber mode , and a mode where beats don't have directional arrows on them.

"Robbie, I'd be hopeful he will be ok but we have to just wait and see".

In the back-row, Seán O'Brien looks likely to join Munster pair Peter O'Mahony and CJ Stander on his return to worldwide action.

"They have a great record in the Aviva as well".

"It was a real Test match, really arduous". "It's great because our one Achilles heel is that we go narrow and they will exploit that if we go narrow", O'Driscoll explains. They're the sort of side who need to test us. Don't get me wrong they've talked about the All Blacks already in November camp when they got together for the United States of America week and they went away and those 10 players stayed around that are going to be largely involved in that All Blacks game.

"The Argentines would probably be, to a degree, a little bit more combative at the ruck than some of the other teams who tend to let a fair few rucks go and then suddenly they'll have a crack and turn you over".

He isn't talking about today's game against Argentina or even the one against the All Blacks next Saturday.
