"It will really be Conor's call, so I can't answer that until I've chatted to him".

O'Brien has tended to rise to challenges of this kind in the past and he is a player that Schmidt has real faith in.

"And I think that's the next step not just for Ireland but for the provinces, to start to bring through Irish coaches and not have an over-reliance on foreign coaches".

Schmidt revealed that he had spoken to the British and Irish Lions star after Saturday's game. "He's rough and he's ready and, for years, what you see is what you get and who knows what way his body is because he shows you nothing and that's the way he is on the pitch". "I think I described him as a stubborn man on Thursday and I think that ability to bounce back, that resilience he has, could still give him a chance of getting back toward the end of the year and then into the Six Nations".

The hosts scored three tries to the visitors' one but lost flanker Sean O'Brien, scrum-half Kieran Marmion and centre Robbie Henshaw, who was hurt in the warm-up, to injuries.

Argentina got off to a strong start after the interval when Sanchez put his side back into the lead after Dan Leavy was penalised for tackling a player off his feet.

Their lineout struggled at times but the scrum was dominant and the replacements demonstrated what squad depth has been developed under Schmidt by impressing in the second half.

Kiwi coach Schmidt may well opt to return to his native New Zealand for a crack at leading the All Blacks, but Ulster hooker Best hopes he could sign on for more with Ireland.

"I'll get the microscope out and have a decent look and make some decisions on the back of that", added the New Zealander.

The video features Ariana singing on a pile of suitcases and walking through the fog before she escapes into the sky. It's an anthem for those who think blame is a two-way street and relationships aren't one-sided.

"A lot of things we can do better out there".

Ireland have won their second successive match of this year's November series after overcoming Argentina in what was at times, an error-strewn performance from Joe Schmidt's side.

"It's so little to do with me".

"I'm scarred by them from '99 and '07, so they've been a team that have consistently upset us in big games", says former Ireland captain Brian O'Driscoll when previewing this weekend's upcoming tie against the formidable foes.

"The fact that the points differential between us is so narrow in those three games".

Crushing 54-7 winners against Italy in Chicago last Saturday, Joe Schmidt's side enjoyed no such walkover in Dublin as they were made to wait until after the hour to make the result safe thanks to Luke McGrath's converted try.

There was speculation last night that English-born Ulster star Will Addison could wear the No 15 shirt in Kearney's absence, after making his debut last weekend, but he faces stiff competition from Jordan Larmour and Andrew Conway.
