Rugby World cup England v Argentina quiz

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!”
