  • Conversion missed and the ref blows for full-time. A comprehensive win for the Irish who confirm themselves as second level seeds for the 2015 RWC draw in the process. Thanks for joining us folks!

  • TRY, ARGENTINA. One minute remaining, and the Pumas strike once again with a second try in as many minutes after captain Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe slides in... why didn't they play like this before?!?!

  • CONVERSION, ARGENTINA. Hernandez slots the extras to give the scoreline an inch of respectabilty... 46-19

  • TRY, ARGENTINA. Finally, the South Americans give their supporters something to cheer about as Tomas Leonardi powers over for a consolation try. Too little too late unfortunatelly...

  • What has happened to the Pumas? From upsetting Wales to getting hammered by France and punished once again by the Irish...

  • CONVERSION, IRELAND. And the conversion from O'Gara is on target! 46-12

  • TRY, IRELAND. The super subs make an instant impact, and it doesn't take long for Bowe to bag his second try of the night - Ireland's seventh!

  • Ten minutes remain and Ireland empty their bench - off goes Sexton for O'Gara, Iain Henderson replaces Peter O'Mahony and Murray makes way for Reddan.

  • Ireland looking to make their one-man advantage count. But the Pumas are playing better with 14 players than they have with 15!

  • YELLOW CARD, ARGENTINA. A scuffle breaks out between the two packs and after the dust has settled, prop Maximiliano Bustos is sent to the bin. So the Pumas down to 14 men, and down 39-12 on the scoreboard!

  • Cian Healy stays down after a big hit. The medics arrive, but the prop is back on his feet before any ice packs are put on his neck. Replacement for Ireland - Mike McCarthy makes way for Donncha O'Callaghan.

  • Replacement for the Pumas - Sanchez off (again), replaced by Tiesi who goes to full-back, which means Hernandez will take over at 10.

  • Keith Earls stretches his legs with a strong run, before drawing his man and passing to Zebo who shows quick hands to put Gilroy away. The winger fends off two would-be tacklers, before hitting the deck - the crowd are cheering every metre gained by their team.

  • CONVERSION, IRELAND. This time Sexton's conversion attempt is good as the two-time try-scorer slots over from wide out! 39-12

  • TRY, IRELAND. Now it's Gordon D'Arcy on the run. The centre changes direction and runs back inside - catching the Pumas defenders off-guard. The ball comes back to the left where Sexton takes out wide and crosses over for his second try and Ireland's sixth!37-12!

  • The Pumas finally get their hands on the pigskin, but kick it away! They not going to make up any ground by doing that...

  • Sexton tries to add two more from the touchline but to no avail...

  • TRY, IRELAND. Just when we thought the Irish were taking the foot off the pedal a wee bit, Sexton puts in a kick ahead for Bowe to chase. And the wing wins the race for Ireland fifth try of the match! That was out of the top drawer! 32-12!

  • Hernandez restarts, and Gonzalo Camacho gives chase in an attempt to win the ball back but makes a hash of it ... losing the ball forward. Scrum to the Irish...

  • PENALTY, IRELAND. Sexton lines it up - it's a straight-forward penalty shot and the pivot makes no mistake! 27-12
