Rugby World cup England v Argentina quiz

England’s third pool match at Rugby World Cup 2019 will be against the Argentina at the The Tokyo Stadium on Saturday October 5.

England look the stronger of the two sides and know that a victory against Argentina will put them through into the quarter-finals.

The Pumas were impressive in the second half against France but struggled in the early stages. If England’s pack can assert dominance with its power game then victory should follow.

Pumas talisman and former captain Agustin Creevy lit the fuse for the Pool C collision in Tokyo by declaring Eddie Jones’ team play “boring” rugby and should be ready for a “war”.

England ran in 11 tries in their convincing wins over Tonga and the USA and George, the Saracens and Lions hooker, does not recognise Creevy’s view of the nation’s playing style.

“I don’t think we play boring rugby. I’m not overly surprised that he’s tried to say that, but he’s entitled to his opinion and hopefully we’ll prove him wrong on Saturday,” George said.

“In my opinion I don’t think it’s very justified. I’m sure he’s just trying to rattle us a bit. He’s more than welcome to try.”

When reminded that boring is an accusation that has been made against his club Saracens, George replied: “It’s trophies in the bag. We are used to it!”

Rugby World cup England v USA quiz

England’s second pool match at Rugby World Cup 2019 will be against the USA at the Kobe Misaki Stadium on Thursday 26th September.

England previously met the USA during the pool stages of the 1987, 1991 and 2007 editions of the tournament. England won those matches 34-6, 37-9 and 28-10 respectively, but will this time be different in a 2019 RWC that is clearly one of the most open World cups since the tournament began.

Overall, England and the USA have played each other on five occasions and England have won every match.

Head coach Eddie Jones is confident his reshuffled England team will cope with their short turnaround as they prepare for Thursday’s game against the USA, four days after battling past Tonga.

Only five of the team from Sunday’s 35-3 win in their opening World Cup game are keeping their starting places.

“We’ve done a fair bit of homework for this turnaround,” Jones told BBC Sport.

“We trialled a four-day turnaround against Japan last autumn, to make sure the players have experience of it.”

George Ford captains the side at 10, with Billy Vunipola selected again at eight and there are World Cup debuts for wingers Ruaridh McConnochie and Joe Cokanasiga plus centre Piers Francis.

England begin their quest for the Rugby World Cup trophy with a clash against Tonga on the opening weekend of the tournament.

Eddie Jones’ men will hope to banish all memories of their pool-stage exit when hosting the tournament in 2015.

New Zealand, Australia and South Africa all look strong contenders for this RWC final and teams such as Ireland and Wales can never be written-off neitehr.

However England could thrive on the dark horse tag and have enjoyed a solid run of warm-up displays to raise the fans’ spirits.

Tonga hope to produce a big display in a bid to advance from the pool stage for the first time in history.

The New York Skyline Quiz

We have all seen the New York skyline in movies or even in real life. But do you know anything about the buildings, bridges and iconic constructions in that skyline?

New York City is famous for many things, but primarily it is known as the city of skyscrapers.  It all started with the religious cathedrals – its oldest “skyscraper” was the Trinity Church, which was 280ft tall at the time of its completion, in 1846.  Nowadays there are at least 132 buildings which are taller than 600 feet (183 m).

What is a skyscraper ? A skyscraper is a tall, continuously habitable building having multiple floors (UK) or storeys (USA). When the term was originally used in the 1880s it described a building of 10 to 20 floors but now it is used to describe a building of at least 40 to 50 floors. Mostly designed for office, commercial and residential uses, a skyscraper can also be called a high-rise, but the term “skyscraper” is often used for buildings higher than 100 m (328 ft). For buildings above a height of 300 m (984 ft), the term “supertall” can be used, while skyscrapers reaching beyond 600 m (1,969 ft) are classified as “megatall”.

How many iconic constructions (skyscraper, bridges and statues) can you name ? This silhouette of the skyline can give you a clue….
