Jones excited by England's potential after Argentina whitewash

Share

England took a narrow 18-13 lead into half-time following maiden worldwide tries from lock Charlie Ewels and centre Piers Francis in addition to eight points from the boot of George Ford, while Argentina scored through Joaquin Tuculet's touch down and two penalties from Nicholas Sanchez.

"We will look at this closely, have a chat to the player, chat to their clubs and they mightn't play for us".

Skipper Dylan Hartley said: "It's been easy to lead this team".

"Today ends the first two years in the job, we are 21 wins, one loss", Jones said. I am very pleased for the team, I am pleased for the young players, I am pleased they have got some more growth in them. We have to try and fit 61 players into a 45-man EPS [Elite Player Squad].

Will Collier scored the winning try as England secured a hard-fought 2-0 series win against Argentina in another enthralling Test match. The fly-half has orchestrated Eddie Jones' success in the southern hemisphere with growing maturity, top class distribution and some excellent kicking.

"We want to become a very adaptable team - we want to be able to play both ways, if we have to slug it out or if we have to play in an open affair like it was last week".

England head coach Eddie Jones on completing a series whitewash in Argentina: "It is a great achievement". Two rapier-like breaks from the full-back either side of half-time set up brilliant tries for centre Francis and Harlequins team-mate Danny Care and were among the highlights of another thrilling Test match. Replacements: Matt Mullan: 6, Will Collier: 7, Mark Wilson: 6, Alex Lozowski: 6, Denny Solomona: 5. They play in the Under-20s, they become World Cup champions, they get a contract straight away.

"Robshaw and Brown were absolutely exceptional".

England have now returned to Buenos Aires to prepare for their return home and Jones will begin the next stage of his World Cup preparations before flying out to watch the Lions in their Test series in New Zealand. To me, it is a great lesson for us that we have to improve and improve rapidly.

"I think we found a way to score points". The first score of the half came on 52 minutes when a Francis grubber kick was blocked and flanker Pablo Matera kicked the ball, then caught it and dived over. Being on the road has been hard but we've found out a lot about each other. It was like a game of chess and they made the moves better than us.
