Argentina vs England Tips


Argentina are looking for a major improvement this week as they try to bounce back from an incredibly one-sided semi-final defeat to New Zealand last week.

England will still be feeling the bruises from their loss to South Africa, with Steve Borthwick's men mere moments away from a stunning win over the reigning champions. 

Argentina World Cup Results


  • England 27 Argentina 10

  • Argentina 39 Japan 27

  • New Zealand 44 Argentina 6

Argentina Form 


Despite going into their semi-final with New Zealand as the underdogs, Argentina would not have foreseen such a one-sided contest, with the Pumas played off the park by the All Blacks. 

Argentina enjoyed some early pressure as they kept the ball from New Zealand and looked to turn the screw by putting the phases together in their 22. However, they couldn't make it count as New Zealand ultimately broke the shackles to move into the final at a canter. 

While Argentina will not want to play in the bronze medal final, they will relish the chance to avenge their 27-10 loss to England in their opening match. Argentina need to do the simple things right against England as they will likely face a lot of kicking from their opponents. However, if they can put the pressure on at the scrum and keep the handling errors to a minimum, there is no reason why they can't secure the bronze medal.

  • England 18 Samoa 17
  • England 30 Fiji 24
  • South Africa 16 England 15

England Form 


It was so close and yet so far for England on Sunday as they fell to an agonising 16-15 defeat at the hands of reigning world champions South Africa. 

England executed their plan to near-perfection as they kicked well, scrummaged like their lives depended on it and kept South Africa at arm's length. However, South Africa's changes in the pack ultimately told as England gave away a number of scrum penalties, with the last of these giving Handre Pollard the chance to kick South Africa into the final, which is exactly what he did. 

In their final match of the tournament, England have decided to ring the changes. Among them, Henry Arundell comes in on the wing opposite Freddie Steward as Marcus Smith returns at 15. This change in the backline will surely see England's game plan change, and it could also see them run with the ball more. 

Verdict

I am backing England to bounce back from their heartbreaking loss to South Africa by beating Argentina as Henry Arundell returns to the team with a try.
