England v Argentina

Old Mutual Wealth Series - Autumn Internationals 2017

Saturday 11th November - Twickenham - Kick Off 3pm GMT 


Well it is November so it must be Autumn International time together with Movember Moustaches.  

England take on the Pumas at Twickenham in the first of this year's Autumn Internationals, with injuries a plenty.   England have played Argentina in 22 test matches and have won seventeen.  The summer tour series was a close run thing on the first match 38-34 and the second 35-25 but to be fair again the team were depleated because of the Lions Tour.  

England's Jonny May, Joe Launchbury and Marcus Smith have all picked up minor injuries during the warm-weather training in Portugal.  Let's hope Jonny May who is in good form can make at least one of the Autumn Internationals.

 "This is our best 23 selected in what is our most important game this year," said Eddie JonesWe know that Argentina is a strong team - Rugby World Cup semi finalists in 2015 – and we will have to be smart and play well to beat them.”
