The history of rugby union matches between Argentina and Ireland is one of a very even contest. As of June 2014[update] the sides have met twenty times with a result of twelve wins to Ireland, seven to Argentina and one drawn game, however, five of these matches were not a fully test capped match for Ireland. At the end of the 2010 Autumn Internationals there was only a nineteen point difference in cumulative points scored. The largest winning margin of 22 points was recorded in the meeting on 24 November 2012 when Ireland won by 46 points to 24. However, Argentina have yet to beat Ireland on Irish soil, and Ireland have only won twice in Argentina. Ireland's first win Argentina in 1952, however was only a capped match for Argentina. Irelands first fully test capped match win in Argentina came in 2014.
The five matches played between 1952 and 1973 are not regarded as full internationals by Ireland, only by Argentina. In the fifteen matches since 1990 which are counted as full internationals by both sides, Argentina have won five times and Ireland ten times.
