We were thrilled to see Ireland’s victory over Argentina at the weekend!
With many of the star players missing, expectations of the score were anyone’s guess, but the team brought some strong Irish spirit to the Aviva Stadium in Dublin. The Test game also puts Ireland in good stead as we head into the draw for the 2015 World Cup, which is expected next Monday.
On the pitch was Insider Centre player Gordon D’Arcy, who saw and reacted to the action as it unfolded.
He paid particular tribute to Jonathan Sexton who picked up the pace after a missed penalty against South Africa two weeks before. Sexton not only scored vital tries for his team, but added points with his conversions as well.
‘You might take Johnny for granted but we don’t,’ D’Arcy continued, ‘we’re absolutely blessed to have him. His selection of plays was first class and he showed why he’s one of the best out-halves in the world. He controlled the game’
A great game and as George Hook described in the Irish Independent, ‘happy days may be here again’.
