Welcome brace: Johne Murphy

Ireland A completed an unbeaten autumn series with a 31-0 victory over Argentina Jaguares at Tallaght Stadium on Friday.

Johne Murphy crossed twice while Ryan Caldwell, Ian Dowling and John Fogarty also scored tries with Ian Humphreys slotting three conversions.

Ireland drew first blood after 12 minutes, Donnacha Ryan and Humphreys combining to send Caldwell over after the Jaguares had come under heavy pressure.

Outside centre Fergus McFadden made significant inroads into the visitors' defence, eventually leading to Dowling touching down for the second try.

Ireland entered the interval 12-0 up and made a dynamic start to the second half, crossing just three minutes in.

Skipper Mick O'Driscoll won a lineout and a maul started that resulted in Fogarty barging his way over.

Winger Ian Dowling became an increasingly prominent figure, making the initial break that led to Murphy's first try.

Humphreys was involved in Murphy's second with Felix Jones creating havoc before supplying the scoring pass to complete the rout.
