Rob Kearney again showing why he's our #15. Class.

Murray is world class.
We're never going to find a replacement/other option if we keep giving #21 5 minutes.— Covfefe O'Donoghue (@ColmODonoghue) November 25, 2017
If only this was 769 days ago
The number of players blooded by Schmidt this series has been a massive positive. Never before have Ireland possessed such depth. #IREvARG— Alan Drumm (@alanjdrumm) November 25, 2017
Foot off the throat for the whole 2nd half. Job was done I suppose.
Can it be 6Nations already 😩— Carol 💋 (@Carol_xox) November 25, 2017
Excited about Stockdale. I'd have Larmour on the other wing too. Can't beat the enthusiasm of youth.

Poor from the Ref & TMO around the first Puma try (player was half a meter ahead of the kicker) and two minuted from the end when a Puma player played the ball on the ground just outside their own try line!
Fair play to Ireland, all played well. Rob back to his best, cud have been MotM. Stockdale nailed his starting place.— (((Patrick Hogan))) (@phog6189) November 25, 2017
Ulster winger factory is alive and well and not before time, the three quarters had been getting light in recent years. Ireland are finally hitting the type of consistency that winning teams do

Plenty of positives, but some negatives as well. Thought Murray’s box kicking wasn’t up to his usual high standard. Scrum looked weaker once Toner came on. As a Leinster supporter I don’t know what he brings to any team.
The amount of early leavers is ridiculous. #irevarg— Alan Reilly (@AlanReillyIRL) November 25, 2017
All a bit anti climatic. Stockdale the huge plus of the series, looks a real find. Fair play to Argentina, showed huge ticker but you never really felt we were in real trouble at any stage. Good bit of depth in most positions now, bar half back.

A win is always nice and we never looked like we were going yo lose that game. Stockdale finished superbly and brilliant to see Rob Kearney playing so well. More positives than negatives from the Autumn Internationals and that's always a good thing.
Still can't get over the Argentinian player lying on the ground playing the ball on their line before their breakout. #IREvARG— David McGovern (@daveo_irl) November 25, 2017
'Twas a game of 3 halves
Early domination and the first championship minutes where take. Advantage of
Then the lads looked more tired than me after queens of the Stone Age last night.
Fair play to Argentina, they where professional and too stubborn to take their spanking. I wanted a wheelbarrow of points put on then today but they came back in second half.
It's magic, keep the ball, win the game. Who'd have thunk it???
Tackled under the posts, sweeping move down the field. Drubber kick again exposes Ireland again. Argentina try. Ireland win but food for thought on that second half display. #IREvARG— Hawkeye Sidekick (@hawkeyesidekick) November 25, 2017
Amazing first half, they were text book. Wonderful to see Rob playing so well and also to see the fantastic new players - Stockdale! - coming through, exciting times for Irish rugby. The second half was a bit of a mess but, I'm willing to overlook that. Hope they all have a great Christmas, here's to the 6 nations. :)
2nd half very meh for https://t.co/df2Pkgdy6c was won at ht but if you switch off 5% at this level opposition with come back into it. Gutsy 2nd half by Pumas. Lots of positives playing with new centres & wings.— Tom Coleman (@LeinsterRoyalty) November 25, 2017
Joe won’t be happy. We still don’t have the cold blooded ruthlessness if the AB’s.
Overall an excellent 3 weeks, with 3 win, the platform is there and building for the 6Nations and the WC.— Mick O Brien (@mickobrien1) November 25, 2017
More strength in depth in many positions can only be a good thing.

Overall a good month. A few experiments and it all held together.

Mostly positive, we got in control and stayed there until the last 20 minutes. Even then we were able to get a try when we needed it to kill off the contest. But Murray had an off day with the boot which kept them in it, handing them back cheap possession when we had survived a period of pressure. Should have seen McGrath earlier for that reason.
Still 7 wins on the trot now, plus the way it ended means we shouldn't be too cocky heading to Paris in Feb.

Happy out with 3 from 3 this autumn playing some great stuff but with scope for further improvement. What a position to be in! Take a bow Joe and squad.
— Ashley McAllister (@ashmca) November 25, 2017
I think Stockdale is my new man-crush. Ticks all the boxes for a Joe winger too.
