Match Preview: England vs Argentina

England and Argentina face off in their first match of Pool D, as the two sides look to get off to a solid start in what is expected to be a crunch match for both sides.

What: Rugby World Cup – Pool D

Who: England vs Argentina

When: 09/09/2023 – 21:00 local time

Where: Orange Velodrome, Marsielle

Team News:

England: Steve Borthwick has elected to include experienced prop Dan Cole and wingers Elliot Daly and Jonny May in a lineup that will be expected to pull from past successes to rejuvenate the current England squad. The inclusion of George Ford at flyhalf with the exciting Alex Mitchell at scrum half will create a fascinating combination not yet tested in the England side.

Argentina: The Pumas have the threatening Carreras brothers to contend with, as Santiago takes his place at fly half, a position he’s settled in to incredibly well over the past years for Argentina, whilst Mateo will cause serious damage to the English defence on the wing if he is allowed an ounce of space.

Line ups:

England: Steward; May, Marchant, Tuilagi, Daly; Ford, Mitchell; Genge, George, Cole, Itoje, Chessum, Lawes (capt), Curry, Earl.

Replacements: Dan, Marler, Stuart, Martin, Ludlam, Care, Smith, Lawrence.

Argentina: Mallia; Boffelli, Cinti, Chocobares, M Carreras; S Carreras, Bertranou; Gallo, Montoya (capt), Gomez Kodela, Lavanini, Alemanno, Martin Gonzalez, Kremer, Matera.

Replacements: Creevy, Sclavi, Bello, Petti Pagadizabal, Rubiolo, Bruni, Bazan Velez, Moroni.

Stats:

Prediction:

England 10 – 22 Argentina

England have been facing the pressure recently, both on their results and their style of play. With this in mind, we expect them to either come out firing and play an expansive game, or more likely get caught in the occasion and revert back to their ‘step-by-step rugby.

If this is indeed the case, then expect the talents of Argentina to take advantage of this with their own flamboyant style.
