Winger Simon Zebo is hoping he will add to his seven Ireland caps by retaining his place for the second Test against Argentina in Tucuman on Saturday.

Zebo made his first Ireland appearance in a year in Saturday's 29-17 win and is determined to revive his international prospects.

The 24-year old missed the team's Six Nations triumph after a spell on the sidelines with a foot injury.

"I was just grateful that I had got the chance to get back and play," he said.

"To come back and get in the shirt and get a win as well has been special.

"It is always going to be tough with the competition we have. There are some world-class operators in the back-three department for us and we're blessed to have that.

"Hopefully the strong competition drives me on and drives all our other players on, and come the World Cup and the Six Nations we will have a strong squad."

Zebo admitted he was "a little rusty" during Saturday's game, adding: "But generally I was happy."
