Twitter reacts with disbelief to Ireland’s first half against Argentina

An incredible half of rugby


This wasn’t in the script.

Ireland are trailing Argentina 10-20 at half-time in the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

Joe Schmidt’s makeshift team, without stalwarts Paul O’Connell, Jonny Sexton and Sean O’Brien, were blitzed in the opening 10 minutes of the Rugby World Cup quarter-final.

The Argentinians scored two quick tries and were leading 17-3 after 14 minutes, before an Ian Madigan penalty, and Luke Fitzgerald try, brought Ireland back into the game.

Here’s how Twitter reacted:
