Two of Argentina's tries made for an absolute masterclass in finishing

Juan Imhoff and Joaquin Tuculet served up two fantastic tries.

THERE WILL BE plenty of time for recriminations and an Irish post-mortem in the coming days.

For now we have to tip our cap to an impressive Argentinian performance and, in particular, two sensational finishes.

With Rob Kearney breathing down his neck, Juan Imhoff did superbly to collect Santiago Cordero’s chip and squeeze the ball down before he slid out of the back of the in-goal area.

The nail in the coffin of Ireland’s comeback came in the 69th minute when Joaquin Tuculet dipped back inside Rob Kearney, and then shrugged off challenges of Dave Kearney and Keith Earls before stretching out to place the ball in the corner.
