‘Pumas second best side in Rugby Championship’ – Jones

Date published: November 25 2016

England coach Eddie Jones says that Argentina were the second best team in the Rugby Championship despite finishing last.

Jones’s men clash with los Pumas at Twickenham on Saturday and the England boss has been incredibly complementary of the South Americans before the Test.

“This game against Argentina is a big step up for us as they were probably the second best team in the Rugby Championship and played some exceptional rugby,” he said.

“They are a quality team, have power in the forwards, speed and guile in the backs as well as great experience.

“We appreciate they have threats across the field and they have always been a physical, tough side. They still have their set-piece armoury in the scrum and line-outs so we’re looking forward to a great game of rugby against them.”
