Ireland 24-7 Argentina, 42 minutes

“Use it!” cries Matthew Carley as the Argentina maul is stalled, and Tomas Cubelli does. But Ireland are well set defensively, Tadhg Furlong twice producing forceful hits and nearly allowing a teammate to steal in for a turnover on the jackal.

Ireland 24-7 Argentina, 41 minutes

Remarkable strength from Ronan Kelleher to hold O’Mahony high above his head as the flanker claims the kick-off and nearly overbalances.

Ireland soon infringe, though, and Argentina kick towards the left corner for a lineout inside the Ireland 22.

The second half is underway!

The players are back out there

Francisco Gomez Kodela turns down his collar as he and his Argentina teammates re-emerge.

Unsurprisingly, Peter O’Mahony appears to be the Ireland captain with James Ryan off. Ryan Baird, having received a late call-up to the matchday squad, replaced Ryan in the second row.

Right into a brick wall...and through it!

HT: Ireland 24-7 Argentina

A funny sort of half to assess. Argentina probably deserve to be closer on the scoreboard and might well have been had Mateo Carreras not mishandled within sniffing distance of the line, but Ireland have taken their three tries strongly with plenty of close-in punch. There were also those two strange, simple missed kicks from Emiliano Boffelli that would have made this a much tighter contest.

Ireland 24-7 Argentina, 40 minutes

Bad news for Ireland in the wake of that try - James Ryan has been taken off receiving treatment and Ireland’s captain will take no further part.

Tadhg Furlong picks and goes cleverly from a ruck as the clock ticks into the red but an Ireland kick finds touch and that will be the end of the first forty minutes...

TRY! IRELAND 24-7 Argentina (Caelan Doris try, 38 minutes)

How about that for a finish from Caelan Doris? After Baloucoune makes another burst, Doris is invited on a short line from deep and into two Argentina defenders the number eight charges.

He is absolutely rocked in a collision that reverberates around the Aviva, Pablo Matera and Francisco Gomez Kodela giving Doris some free chiropractic work to the ribs, but somehow maintains his feet, regathers himself and goes again into the space that the pair have left.

An apparently winded Doris survives two more tacklers and manages to dot down. Another Joey Carbery conversion further widens the Ireland lead.

Ireland 17-7 Argentina, 36 minutes

Can Ireland capitalise before half-time on that Argentina near miss? That’ll help! An outstanding claim from James Lowe as he chases a kick and wins it back for Ireland.

On the other side, Robert Baloucoune gets his first chance in the open field and he nearly burns Lucio Cinti on the outside.
