Rugby World Cup 2019: England v Argentina Tips & Preview

Eddie Jones guys have negotiated the two games with comparative ease, racking up two bonus point wins from the USA and Tonga.
Englands stingy defence has surrendered just once in the past few matches (USAs last-second try) and that looks set to stand them in good stead against the Pumas, who have passed the 20 point mark only twice this year.
Jones appears to get chosen his most popular team with Henry Slade Mako Vunipola and also Jack Nowell all returning to choose their position on the bench — a welcome boost really.
Argentina input the match with only a win in 2019 (the 28-12 victory over Tonga last Saturday) and seem a far cry from the side which created the semi-finals at 2015. Mario Ledesma has really made a huge selection call falling fly-half Nicolas Sanchez in their 23-man squad for the first time in 3 decades, opting to Benjamin Urdapilleta at number 10.
Argentinas assault that has appeared so slick over the last few seasons has been pretty blunt in Japan and they have reverted to their traditional strengths, together with the forwards package accounting for five of the six attempts — four of these likely to hooker Julian Montoya.
It is worth noting that Englands forwards have been effective, scoring five of their 11 attempts through the initial two games.
Considering those stats it seems as though Jamie George is slightly overpriced at 20/1 to score first — that the Saracens celebrity played against Tonga and awarded the potency of Englands maul game, George could be in prime position to receive his second try of the tournament.
My second bet of this game is England to acquire by 11-20 points in 11/4. The Pumas have only lost by more than 10 points after since the start of the year (a 46-13 reduction to South Africa). Their four outcomes against England have observed them lose by 13-10-4-13, together with these two centre defeats coming against a second series.
Englands seat is arguably the most powerful we have seen from any side in the tournament and while I anticipate that a close tussle, thesefinishers will come on to produce all the difference and ease them away from the Pumas overdue on.
