England kept their unbeaten run against Argentina at Twickenham on Saturday.  However, we had red cards, yellow cards , injuries and now suspension.

Although England won, they were down to 14 men after the first 5mins of the game when rising star Elliott Daly made a reckless tackle.  He walked off dejected after he he was red carded.  He has now been suspended for three weeks, up to and including Sunday 18th December.





Referee Pascal Gauzere had a very busy day, he watches the screen before making a decision to show another the red card this time to Argentina.


 and then we had  Billy Vunipola leaving the pitch due to injury, which turned out to be torn cartilage undergoing an operation at the weekend and putting him out of the 2017 Six Nations. Get well soon Billy we need you.

the scrum played a big part in the match for Argentina and led to one of their tries

 Jonny May was a huge threat on the wing and eventually going over for a try

Owen Farrell was a bit 'iffy' with his kicks and overall England did well to win having being down to 13 men at one point.

England face Australia next weekend in the final match of the Old Mutual Wealth Series and fingers crossed they can end this year unbeaten to match the record of 14 consecutive victories set in 2003.
