Rugby World Cup 2019: England v Argentina Tips & Preview
Eddie Jones men have negotiated the opening two games with relative ease, racking up 2 bonus stage wins from the USA and Tonga.
Englands stingy defence has conceded just once in the past three games (USAs last-second attempt ) and that seems set to put them in good stead against the Pumas, who have handed the 20 point mark only twice this year.
Jones looks to get chosen his most popular squad with Mako Vunipola, Henry Slade and Jack Nowell all coming from injury to choose their place on the seat — a boost indeed.
Argentina input the match with just 1 win in 2019 (the 28-12 victory over Tonga last Saturday) and seem a far cry from the side that created the semi-finals in 2015. Mario Ledesma has made a huge selection call diminishing fly-half Nicolas Sanchez from their squad for the first time in 3 decades, opting for Benjamin Urdapilleta at number 10.
Argentinas attack that has looked so slick over the last couple of seasons has been pretty blunt in Japan and they have reverted to their original strengths, together with the forward package accounting for five of their six tries — four of these likely to hooker Julian Montoya.
Its well worth noting that the forward of England have been effective, scoring five of the 11 attempts throughout the initial two games.
Looking at those stats it seems as though Jamie George is slightly overpriced at 20/1 to score first — that the Saracens celebrity scored against Tonga and awarded the potency of Englands maul game, George could be in prime position to receive his second try of the championship.
My second wager of the game is England to triumph by 11-20 points at 11/4. The Pumas have only lost by more than 10 points after since the beginning of the year (that a 46-13 reduction to South Africa). Their past four results against England have noticed them shed by 13-10-4-13, with those two defeats coming from a second string side.
The seat of england is the most powerful weve seen from some other side in the tournament and while I expect that a tussle, thosefinishers will come on to produce all of the difference and alleviate them away from the Pumas overdue on.
