Alan Quinlan has urged Ireland to prove Saturday’s defeat was just an aberration by taking their frustration out on Argentina.
“There's always pressure when you lose a game as you don't want to lose two games in a row,” said the Ireland flanker Quinlan.
“There are World Cup ranking points on offer and I think we’re a better team than what we showed against New Zealand.
“Hopefully we can prove that this weekend. We'll have to look at the video, analyse it, see where we went wrong and try to prepare correctly.
“We need to bounce back. Argentina are a very strong side and have been one of our rivals over the years. Hopefully we can bounce back from the All Blacks defeat.
“If we’d lost and played well, had a really good go, held onto the ball well and stretched them, then we wouldn't be so disappointed.
“We’re frustrated we didn’t play well and string a few phases together and hurt them.”
Ireland name their team to face Argentina, their nemesis at the World Cup, today.
Meanwhile, tonight at Thomond Park, Munster will attempt to repeat the heroics of 30 years ago when they face New Zealand.
Piri Weepu will captain New Zealand for the first time while former All Black Doug Howlett is expected to line-up against his former team-mates.
The All Blacks team shows 14 changes from Saturday’s starting line-up against Ireland with only winger Joe Rokocoko retained in the side.
Tasman prop Ben Franks and Taranaki flanker Scott Waldrom will make their All Blacks debuts.
However, the Heineken Cup champions will be understrength because several of their players are required for Ireland duty against Argentina next weekend.
The All Blacks team contains eight players who started New Zealand's 32-6 triumph against Scotland at Murrayfield earlier this month.
In addition to Franks and Waldron, the squad contains more prospective newcomers on the bench in Hawkes Bay hooker Hikawera Elliott and Wellington half-back Alby Mathewson.
The game against European champions Munster marks the official opening of their renovated Limerick stadium. All Blacks coach Graham Henry said: "The Munster match will be a special occasion for the team, and the guys are really looking forward to visiting Limerick.
"The team also knows that it will be a hard, physical match against the European club champions."
Mick O'Driscoll will lead Munster out against the All Blacks for the 30th anniversary of that legendary 12-nil win over the tourists at Thomond Park in 1978.
The front-line internationals from last weekend's loss to New Zealand aren't available but coach Tony McGahan has included all the players that have been released from the extended training camp.
Denis Leamy has fully recovered from his shoulder operation and lines out at number eight alonside James Coughlan and Niall Ronan.
In the back three McGahan has opted to put Dougie Howlett at Full back with Barry Murphy and Ian Dowling on the wings.
While, Paul Warick will steer the ship from 10 with Peter Stringer feeding him from scrum-half.
The Kiwi centre pairing of Rua Tipoki and Lifemi Mafi is retained intact and will be expected to counter the Haka before kick-off.
In the front row, Freddie Puciariello and Frankie Sheehan are joined by Tim Ryan, while his namesake Donnacha Ryan partner's O'Driscoll in the second row.
It should be a night to remember.
