If the IRFU Irish team wishes to keep its high rankings and reputation as a rugby team, they will have to deliver their A game during these matches. And practice is only a small part of it. The team has to be confident of its own abilities, and hope the coach and staff will come prepared with new strategies and techniques. The team not only has to maintain its winning streaks against the USA and the Japanese, but they have to assert their position and abilities against the teams that were previously able to defeat them.
The are not going to settle for another loss against the Argentinian’s. The men are in no way willing to accept defeat, which makes these games really steamy and worth watching. If Ireland can pull a win against Argentina, it would the turning point in the rankings, and it would as well elevate the team’s spirits for further games.
