Ireland beats Argentina

DUBLIN - Ireland completed a clean sweep of November test wins yesterday with a mostly novice backline at international level coming through with a relatively comfortable 28-19 win over Argentina at the Aviva Stadium. With one eye on the 2019 World Cup, Ireland coach Joe Schmidt used each member of his squad fit for selection over the course of wins against South Africa, Fiji and Argentina with second row James Ryan and wing Jacob Stockdale in particular laying down a marker for next year's Six Nations.

Japan holds on in France draw

PARIS - Yu Tamura botched his chance to give Japan a famous victory over France when he missed a simple conversion late on in a 23-23 draw at the U Arena in Paris, a result that drew boos on the final whistle from frustrated home fans yesterday. France have won just three of their 11 tests in 2017 and were fortunate not to suffer their most humbling reverse yet as flyhalf Tamura lined up a 74th minute conversion with the scores level.

New Zealand overcome Wales

CARDIFF - New Zealand survived ferocious Wales pressure to see off Warren Gatland's battling side 33-18 and complete a northern hemisphere whitewash at Cardiff's Principality Stadium with a fifth tour victory yesterday. The match was closer than the scoreline suggested with the All Blacks powered to a 30th successive victory over their opponents by their juggernaut wings Waisake Naholo and man of the match Rieko Ioane, who each scored two tries."We would have had a good chance of winning if we had contained the pace and power of their wingers," said Wales coach Warren Gatland.
