Rugby World Cup 2019: England v Argentina Tips & Preview

Eddie Jones men have negotiated the two games with ease, racking up 2 bonus point wins from the USA and Tonga.
Englands stingy defence has conceded just once in the past few games (USAs last-second attempt ) and that seems set to put them in good stead from the Pumas, whove passed the 20 point mark just twice annually.
Jones looks to have chosen his most popular 23-man squad with Jack Nowell, Henry Slade and also Mako Vunipola all coming to choose their position on the bench — a welcome increase really.
Argentina enter the game with just a win in 2019 (the 28-12 victory over Tonga last Saturday) and look a far cry from your side which left the semi-finals in 2015. Mario Ledesma has really made a huge choice call falling fly-half Nicolas Sanchez in their 23-man squad for the first time in 3 years, opting for Benjamin Urdapilleta at number 10.
Argentinas assault that has looked so sleek over the past couple of seasons has been pretty blunt in Japan and theyve reverted to their traditional strengths, together with the forward pack accounting for five of the six tries — four of these likely to hooker Julian Montoya.
Its worth noting that Englands forwards have been similarly successful, scoring five of the 11 attempts through the initial two matches.
Considering these stats it sounds like Jamie George is somewhat overpriced at 20/1 to score — the Saracens celebrity played against Tonga and given the strength of Englands maul match, George could be in prime position to receive his second try of the championship.
My bet of this sport is England to acquire by 11-20 points at 11/4. The Pumas have only lost by over 10 points after since the beginning of the year (that a 46-13 reduction to South Africa). Their past four outcomes against England have seen them shed by 13-10-4-13, together with these two defeats coming from a largely second string side.
The bench of england is the strongest we have seen from any side in the championship and while I anticipate that a close tussle, thosefinishers could come on to create all of the difference and facilitate them late on.
