Tests? What Tests?
Perverse rugby story of the week is this one :
The Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) are upset with their Argentine counterparts because they can't get confirmation of venues for two proposed Ireland rugby tests in Argentina this summer. They are considering cancelling the tour as no one in Argentina has a clue about, well, any of it, really.
The strange thing is that Ireland don't really want to go on this tour and would be resting all their main World Cup players anyway. Even more perverse is the fact that Argentina would quite welcome some pre-World Cup matches and would most probably use their full strength squad.
