Scrappy Ireland battle to overcome Argentina

The sides met in last season's November games

"They have recovered but at the start of the week they weren't and you are running to make sure everything is cohesive as possible, particularly as we only trained on Tuesday and Thursday".

It would be Argentina in the quarter finals followed by probably Australia, jaysus the final is almost in reach.

"The players are incredibly excited about what's coming up", Schmidt said. There was no chance that this Irish team would lose Argentina, surely not.

"They put some great pressure on our lineout and we struggled, but we got into the game on the back of our scrum, which was very good".

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. That match finished 30-15 in favour of the South American side.

"Yeah, I think that's the strongest pack that we have", began O'Driscoll, referring to a forward line containing the likes of Tadhg Furlong, Peter O'Mahony and CJ Stander.

"I think Joe (Schmidt) really feels as though Argentina are still a bogey team for us he's still scarred from that World Cup quarter-final", O'Driscoll adds.

O'Brien is definitely out of the clash with New Zealand next Saturday but Schmidt is blessed with talent in the back row.

"But that's a good way for us to try to cope and test ourselves against a really good side, which we know Argentina are".

Schmidt, who is hoping for a successful end to a remarkable year which has seen them secure the Six Nations Grand Slam and a Test series win in Australia, said they would be only human not to be thinking of the match between the top two ranked teams in the world but it could prove costly such is competition for places.

"We want to go out and win and keep this home record we have".

Five more points from Sexton closed out a victory that was far from guaranteed. So yeah I think it's a really strong team.

Ireland stormed back and such was their confidence of getting the better of the Pumas forwards Jonathan Sexton rejected going for goal on two occasions, opting for touch instead.

"Even the things we did well, we can probably do a little bit better".

Ireland face Argentina in the second of their November series tests at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday with kick-off at 6:30.
