Argentina v England - Live

Last updated: 15th June 2013  


80 That's it! England win their first series in Argentina in 32 years! It all ends with bit of biffo. Thanks for joining us, cheers!

77 Argentina finish strongly. Credit to them, they haven't rolled over.

Conversion CONVERSION, MYLER. 26-51. England break the 50 point barrier - impressive!

TRY TRY, ENGLAND, YARDE. 26-49. He's got another! England spread it wide quickly and Eastmond offloads on his inside to Yarde, who runs a great line to coast over.


TRY TRY, ARGENTINA, LEONARDI. 24-44. The Pumas fight on! Tomas Leonardi barges over from short range. The Tmo can't a fault, so Argentina have their second try.

69 The expected maul crumbles inches short. It goes wide to Contepomi, who feeds Tiesi...who knocks on. But we come back for a penalty, which the Pumas choose to tap and go.

67 What? Argentina win a penalty at scrum time! Contepomi sticks it into the corner. You can bet your house there is a maul coming.

Conversion CONVERSION, BURNS. 19-44. Easy conversion for Burns, who then goes off for Stephen Myler on debut.

TRY TRY, ENGLAND, EASTMOND. 19-42. Kyle Eastmond scores a wonderful try, thanks to two great steps. One to get past the first tackler and another to beat the cover...all done with incredible speed. Under the posts he goes. Try of game!

62 The benches start to empty now. Argentina are getting a bit loose as they chase the game. Gonzalo Tiesi throws a wild pass to...no one. England have a line-out on the 10m line. The England jumper is pulled down so Burns will set up an attacking line-out from the penalty.

Conversion CONVERSION, BURNS. 19-37. That should be enough for victory now.

TRY TRY, ENGLAND, YARDE. 19-35. What power and speed from the youngster, who gets the ball from Wigglesworth out on the touchline and turns on the gas to evade two cover defenders for his first Test try!

55 Burns sends his conversion effort wide.

TRY TRY, ENGLAND, WEBBER. 19-30. A great break from Marland Yarde needs five defenders to shut him down. The ball is recycled quickly and Webber has an easy run-in out on the wing.

52 Argentina are right back in this but it's England on the attack, with Ben Morgan leading the charge on the edge on the Pumas 22.

Conversion CONVERSION, BUSTOS MOYANO. 19-25. The Argentine full-back returns to the fray just in time to slot the extras.

TRY TRY, ARGENTINA, MONTERO!!! 17-25. Argentina strike back, despite being down to 14 men! Great try after a long build up as Manuel Montero bust past three defenders to score!

45 OUFF! The England scrum marches their hosts back again. Penalty! Burns sets up the attacking line-out. Argentina are looking decent but all their good work is being undone at scrum time.

43 Argentina look to build in centre field but they are going backwards... a few loose offloads see them track back to clean up. But they still have it and they are showing some attacking spirit.

Second half Here we go for round two! Contepomi kicks us off. It goes deep, Burns replies with a high ball which Belisario Agulla spills, it's gone backwards but the England cavalry arrive and the Pumas are stuck in their half.


Conversion CONVERSION, BURNS. 12-25. That's it for the first half. Argentina are in big trouble if they can't sort their scrum out.

PENALTY TRY!!! 12-23. There it is, the Argentine scrum is crushed and Owens raises his arm under the sticks.

Yellow Card YELLOW CARD, ARGENTINA, BUSTOS MOYANO. The Pumas full-back is sent to the bin for cynically going off his feet to kill the ball. Wood calls for another scrum 5m short of the Argentina line. Another penalty try on it's way?

TRY TRY, ENGLAND, BURNS. 12-18. Great try from Freddie Burns, who steps his man before powering over with two Pumas on his back. The fly-half sends his conversion attempt wide though.

36 NO try! The TMO says that Webber knocked-on, which seems a fair call.

35 Try for Wilson? Garcia Veiga makes a hash of his line-out throw and Webber collects before offloading to Wilson, who charges over.

Conversion CONVERSION, BURNS. 12-13. Burns adds the simple extras and England have the lead for the first time.

PENALTY TRY!!! Massive call from Nigel Owens, who rules that Argentina deliberately collapsed the scrum. That's a harsh call considering it was the first scrum in that position.

30 Great opportunity here for England as they have a 5m scrum after Bustos Moyano is forced to carry the ball over his own tryline after a bomb from Burns.

28 Positive intent shown by Mike brown as he takes a quick throw in after Bustos Moyano clears from inside his 22. England build in centre field.

Penalty PENALTY, ARGENTINA, BUSTOS MOYANO. 12-6. Launchbury straight off his feet at the first ruck after the restart.

Penalty PENALTY, ENGLAND, BURNS. 9-6. Much better kick from the Gloucester man as he finds the mark from the touchline, 35m out.

24 Trouble here as Argentina scrum-half Landajo is charged down just metres from his own tryline! The England loosies are a bit over eager though and go straight off their feet so Contepomi can clear.

Penalty PENALTY, ARGENTINA, BUSTOS MOYANO.9-3. Great long-range effort from the home kicker. England need to be careful ate the breakdown.

19 Burns MISS. The England pivot sends his effort across the face of goal to the cheers of the locals.

17 It's a bit stop-start at the moment, England line a line-out in centre field and Burns thumps one high for Jonathan Joseph to chase. Martin Bustos Moyano collects ball and man and doesn't release...penalty!

15 Wow! A massive scrum from England marches the hosts back. It's rare to see the Pumas dominated like that in the set piece.

13 The Pumas are looking like a much slicker unit than we saw last week, mixing it up between the backs and forwards. England are in for a tough one. A big maul up the middle of the field make 10 more metres for the hosts.

Penalty PENALTY, ARGENTINA, BUSTOS MOYANO. 6-3. Another clean strike from the wing.

10 Argentina are looking much better than a week ago, picking and drive their way forward. 10 pick and goes so far already. Penalty! England not rolling away.

Penalty PENALTY, ENGLAND, BURNS. 3-3. Positive reaction from England who march into Pumas territory and force the penalty on the deck.

Penalty PENALTY, ARGENTINA, BUSTOS MOYANO. 3-0. Easy three points from right in front.

4 England gather the line-out and clear but Argentina are happy to attack from the next line-out on the England 22. Penalty to the hosts as England are off their feet.

2 Los Pumas probe left then right before Contepomi finds touch in the corner with a brilliant kick!

Kick off Bad start for England. Freddie Burns' kick-off doesn't go ten so Argentina will have the first chance to attack from a scrum on the centre spot.

Anthems 'God save the Queen' isn't exactly well received...but no one expected as much!

Team News As mentioned, England are without Twelvetrees and Wade so Kyle Eastmond and Johnny May start. Marland Yarde is on the left wing in place of David Strettle. Meanwhile, Argentina move Felipe Contepomi to fly-half in place of Benjamin Urdapilleta and Belisario Agulla comes in at 14. Kick-off is coming up.

Welcome Our final live offering of a busy Saturday comes from Buenos Aires where Argentina and England go at it again. England won impressively last weekend by a 32-3 scoreline but things might be closer this time, particularly with Billy Twelvetrees and Christian Wade now being with the Lions in Australia. Stay right there as more in-depth team news is coming up ahead of what should be another good game.
