14 – man England too strong
London: England showed great determination, organisation and experience to overcome a fifth-minute red card for Elliot Daly and grind out an impressive 27-14 victory over Argentina on Sunday to make it 12 wins in a row under Eddie Jones Wing Daly was sent off for tackling Leonardo Senatore in the air but England still battled to a 16-0 lead via the boot of Owen Farrell and a penalty try. Argentina got back to 16-14 within a minute of the second half but some streetwise play enabled Farrell to stretch the lead before a Jonny May try secured the win. England can complete an unbeaten calendar year with victory over Australia next week as the Jones revolution continues. Conversely it has been a dismal year for Argentina, World Cup semifinalists a year ago. The Pumas have now lost seven of their last eight games and their 2016 return is four wins and nine defeats.
The result of that is that they have slipped out of the top eight rankings - crucial to seeding for next May’s World Cup draw. England 27 (Jonny May try; penalty try; Owen Farrell conversion, 5 penalties) Argentina 14 (Facundo Isa, Santiango Cordero tries; Juan Martin Hernandez 2 conversions). HT: 16-7 - Reuters
