Ulster centre Darren Cave is worried that he did not perform well enough for Ireland during their recent Tests against Argentina.

Ulster centre Darren Cave is worried that he did not perform well enough for Ireland during their recent Tests against Argentina.

Cave only made four starts for Ireland between 2009 and 2013, but delivered an impressive performance when he started at outside centre in Ireland's 29-17 win over los Pumas in their first Test in Resistencia during June.

He was moved to the number 12 jersey for the second Test in Tucumán - which Ireland won 23-17 - but delivered a more subdued performance and he admits that he is concerned about his future at Test level.

"A lot of my caps have come in semi-depleted Irish teams, almost glorified Irish Wolfhound or 'A' teams," he told thescore.ie

"So it was nice to play alongside your Paul O'Connells, Jonny Sextons and that.

"I thought in the first Test I played pretty well, I was very happy with how it went.

"In the second Test, I didn't think I played badly, I just felt afterwards that it would have been nice to have given a wee bit more, to make people say, 'he should be involved in November.'"
