Argentina's achieved a historic victory over Ireland last weekend. Fantastic result for them which once again reinforces the point that they need to be taken seriously, and included in an international tournament.
In summary, the Irish visited Sante Fe to take on Los Pumas. Ireland's two tries were answered by Felipe Contepomi's penalty kicks. A late Argentine try and a bit of magic from Contepomi proved to be the difference in this upset.
Los Pumas have now beaten both England and Ireland...But where do they stand in the grand scheme of things, with the world cup in September?
