Ireland capped off a fantastic month with a record win against Argentina, crossing for seven tries to see off Los Pumas 53-7 at the Aviva Staduim.

Their eighth win in a row ends a progressive year of Test rugby for Andy Farrell's side who seem to have found their identity in attack, scoring 19 tries and 142 points in their three games.

Here's how we rated Ireland's players this afternoon:

Hugo Keenan - 7

It was a forward-dominated game and as such Keenan had to watch on patiently for the bulk of his 51 minutes action. The most reliable performer in Andy Farrell's squad, he completed the bread and butter duties without fuss and without error.

Robert Baloucoune - 7

Similar to Keenan, Baloucone often found himself getting cold in space with the game being played at close quarters. Looked sharp with the limited play he did see, and two excellent bursts down the wing at the end of the first half set up the opportunity for Doris to score.

Garry Ringrose - 8

One of last week's star men stood out again this afternoon. With 20 combined carries and tackles and no missed tackles he was constantly involved and threatening. Always looking to play with pace, and broke the line four times.

Robbie Henshaw - 7

A lot of hard carrying, and didn't look like a man playing his first game of the season. Carried more than any other player.

James Lowe - 7

Couldn't do much about Argentina's try when he was left in a four-on-one situation and just had to bite. Commanding in the air with a number of excellent contested catches.

Joey Carbery - 9

Probably his best game of rugby since returning from injury last season. Showed us what we already knew in attack, while produced a cracking tackle on Mateo Moroni to show he packs a lot of strength into a small frame.

Conor Murray - 7

Looked to play the ball quickly when it was available, but at times in the first half had to contend with a disrupted service as Argentina attacked the breakdown. Was side-stepped easily by Mateo Carreras leading up to his almost-try in the first half.

Andrew Porter - 7

Has added a new layer to Ireland's pack since his move to loosehead and took his try excellently. Made a decisive try-saving tackle on Carreras when the game was still in the balance in the opening half. Would have scored higher but for his indiscipline, conceding three penalties.

Ronan Kelleher - 8

Came into November fighting with Rob Herring for the number two shirt, and ends the month as the consensus first choice hooker. Another busy performance with the ball in hand and in defence, as well as excellent positional awareness to pop up in open space.

Tadhg Furlong - 9

Joey Carbery was the official Player of the Match, but Furlong was the standout performer for me. His ability to work as a distributor creates chaos for defences who are caught in two minds. His carrying was destructive, time after time he brought play well beyond the gainline. The best tighthead in the world.

Tadhg Beirne - 8

A late, late call-up to the starting team after Iain Henderson was injured in the warm-up, and will be disappointed with his defence for the early Argentinean try. Bounced back from that to put in an excellent display, with 11 carries, 14 tackles and two turnovers, as well as a late try.

James Ryan - 7

Had been going very well once again before his HIA late in the first half ended his afternoon. A couple of big carries, one of which contributed to Caelan Doris's try.

Peter O'Mahony - 8

Was pushed into the starting team late Sunday morning after Jack Conan's injury, and justified his continued selection with another excellent performance. Hit double figures in both carries and tackles, and produced an excellent offload out wide to keep Ireland's attack alive.

Josh van der Flier - 8

Having had to do some of the dirtier work in the last two weeks, his brace of tries were a fair reward for his work-rate this month. Possibly Ireland's most improved player this year, and has added a lot more power to his ball carrying.

Caelan Doris - 9

After showing quick feet for his try last week, Doris proved he can bulldoze his way through tackler this afternoon. Matched that intensity in defence too, topping the tackle count with 16, and helped Andrew Porter over the line with an excellent latch. A superstar finally getting a clear run of games.


Dan Sheehan - 8

A big winner of the month, breaking into the Ireland team and now scoring his first Test try. Made seven tackles in his 30 minute cameo.

Cian Healy - 7

An eventful 23 minutes off the bench which saw him cross the line twice, one of which was ruled out by the TMO. Took a cheap shot was Tomas Lavanini which saw the Clermont lock deservedly red carded.

Tom O'Toole - 7

Like Sheehan, O'Toole put in a big defensive shift, clocking seven tackles in his 23 minutes. While only making two appearances for Ireland so far, the Ulster prop is building up a bank of experience in camp.

Ryan Baird - 8

Baird wasn't meant to play this weekend, and ended up playing 42 minutes, in which he impressed. The highlight was his 50-metre lung-busting run where he displayed the athleticism that sets him apart from the average second row.

Nick Timoney - 7

The game was over as a contest by the time he got onto the pitch, but considering he was added to the bench just minutes before kickoff, he'll be delighted with his seven combined carries and tackles.

Craig Casey - 7

The perfect kind of player to bring off the bench, and his relentless energy was probably the difference between Ireland putting the foot on the throttle rather than stepping off the gas.

Harry Byrne - 7

Saw 30 minutes action off the bench and kept Ireland's backline running. Unspectacular but solid.

Keith Earls - 6

Played the final 15 minutes when the game had been long since killed off, but didn't get much opportunity to show off. His third time coming off the bench in the centre this month, which is worth bookmarking.
