Ireland take on Argentina this weekend for the first time since Los Pumas dramatically dumped them out of the 2015 Rugby World Cup at the quarter final stage.
Having won their first two games of the November series, Joe Schmidt’s men will be no doubt hoping they can make it a perfect three from three, all while exacting a bit of a revenge in the process, even though they won’t admit it.
Schmidt has named a strong side, with the bulk of the starting XV coming from the side that demolished the Springboks in the Aviva a couple of weeks back. And judging by these comments by Iain Henderson, they’re pretty fired up, with things boiling over at training.
“A couple of young guys from the Leinster academy, they were riling guys up, and a few boys rose and reacted. There was a couple of kiss and make-ups in the huddle afterwards. I think all is good with them now,” said the Ulster man.
Should be an absolute cracker on Saturday evening. We simply cannot wait.
