    "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

    Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

                    Came too late for the first game, we urgently needed Basil for the pizza... Considering Chippie's poor resistance under the sun like most of the irish people ( ), I was not waiting for a big performance in this tournament. But let's wait a bit, in a few years, with the climatic change, you will adapt yourself, that's the way of History, and Hanna from Donegal Town and his colleagues will have to lgive up his caps for straw hats...
                    Last year, after a fantastic tournament in London, Ireland seemed already weaker, two tournaments in a week are a big charge. Add to this that Argentina is in the run for the Top8 and that they have a biggest experience, I am not really surprised by the result. The few I saw showed the same than last weak: The biggest irish weakness is in the breakdowns.
                    Anyway, a lesson more, next season will be interresting.

                        Argentina played very smart rugby. Their 3rd try (I think) was made when their player waited until he was just about to be stopped near the wing by 2 Irish players, and off loaded at just the right time to send his winger into availble space. They are well drilled
