England has gone one better than their 2015 campaign, securing a place in the quarter finals after beating Argentina on Saturday 39-10.

Their task had been made easier with Lavanini who was red carded for a high dangerous tackle on Farrell.

The red card changed the game and there was never going to be another winner of this clash than England.

Argentina got in front with a penalty from Urdapilleta but after the red card England took full advantage with Daly and Youngs tries.

This gave them a 15-3 lead at the break with the game still their for the taking.

In the second half, George Ford, Jack Nowell and Luke Cowan-Dickie went over while Owen Farrell added three conversions and a penalty as Eddie Jones’ charges claimed an important win.

This was the crunch game for England and they wil be very happy to get a bonus point win over Argentina.

Argentina did get a late consolation try by Moroni but it was never gonna be easy for the Pumas.

The scorers:

England: Tries: May, Daly, Youngs, Ford, Nowell, Cowan-Dickie Cons: Farrell 3 Pens: Farrell

Argentina: Try: Moroni Con: Boffelli Pen: Urdapilleta

  1. Horrific game. World Rugby ( formerly IRB for you antique types ) is DECIMATING competition to the point where I, Americano make it a MORAL POINT to shut off the competitipn when a red is called.
    WR looks MORE phony baloney than soccer FFS with their magis spray BS with this.
    Enough is Enough

  2. So so clear now that World Rugby is openly biased towards England and New Zealand. That tackle was certainly high (and to the neck), but it was clear that he used his arms + Gay Farell went down just before contact. At best a yellow card, but because it is Gay Farrel and Ramrod Owens, WR sat back smugly as they watch the mighty English demolish the Falkland losers.

  3. While I won’t endorse some of the name distortions you used Bekke – yeah you get the gist regarding context.
    Also don’t date yourself with this Falkland stuff. Kids will ask you for mix-tapes.

  4. Yeah that tackle should not have been a red. These rules are killing the game. Make it a yellow if you must. But come on don’t destroy the games.

    What was a definite red was the crazy shit on Thor – I don’t think those Italian fellas are too bright – there was zero point to it, play had stopped – petulant stupidity.

  5. I honestly can’t think of a player in world rugby who I despise more than Owen Farrel.

    He is the ultimate hypocrite, when looking at his own tackle technique and how he got away with not even a penalty last year for the tackle on Esterhuizen, which was arguably worse than the Argintina player.

    I suspect that Farrel actively milked that red card by dropping down, and offering his head to the contact.

    Total wanker
