England’s 21-8 performance against Argentina didn’t impress coach Eddie Jones even though it was their 3rd victory over the Pumas in 2017.

England were never in trouble, after Nathan Hughes went over and with the kicking of Ford a comfortable 14-3 lead was never put under pressure from an Argentine side looking for their first victory in England since 2006. A late try was all they could offer, after England had scored a second try through Semesa Rokoduguni.

For former Australia coach, Jones, knows he needs a better performance from his team as he told the BBC after. “It was a grindathon, wasn’t it? We were off the pace a bit.

“We haven’t played since March together. Our fluency and understanding wasn’t there, which was understandable,” he added.

Meanwhile, Australia continued to hold the upper hand in wins against Wales with a 21-29 win in Cardiff.

Tries from Polota-Nau, Coleman, Hooper and Beale, meant Wales have not beaten Australia in 13 attempts.

Wales worked hard to stay in the match from 13-22 down at the break, but Australia took over the second half and went on to record another win at Warren Gatland’s men.

Elsewhere, Scotland had a good started to the programme, with a 44-38 win over Samoa, whilst Ireland recorded the best win of the day with a 38-3 win in Dublin over South Africa.
