ENOUGH IS ENOUGH Perhaps I spread the “tough love” a bit too thick in my writeup of Emerging Ireland’s second match in this tournament against Uruguay; I have had a few pangs of guilt since I posted it. Basically what I wanted to convey was that even though we won by a whopper of a scoreline, all was not well with our performance, particularly in the area of ball retention. However, even though this display against the host nation wasn’t exactly a marked improvement on that score, since we not only won but the victory led to a trophy I’d be a real hardass to lay into the boys for a second time.
IN CASE OF EMERGE-NCY, BREAK SWEAT If ever a result needed to be put into context, it’s this one. The stream was pretty awful as the match was played but I was able to get hold of a decent recording and having watched the full 80 I think it’s very important to explain just how poor the opposition was. Now to be fair..I’d know a lot more about Uruguay’s soccer team than their rugby one even if Luis Suarez wasn’t playing, but believe me when I tell you that although I am only offering a couple of reasons I believed them to be below standard, I could probably have found many more.

The result is a first ever series triumph for the Europeans in Argentina but given the lack of a global season Argentina was in fact in no position to take on the 2014 Six Nations Champions with a true test side. With Daniel Hourcade missing European based players already confirmed to be playing in the Rugby Championship and others to be named later Argentina hosted Ireland with a team almost entirely made up of domestic based players.
