Match Report – England 27 – 10 Argentina

George Ford kicked all 27 points for 14-player England in Rugby World Cup Pool D victory over Argentina

The boot of George Ford proved pivotal as England posted a remarkable 27-10 Rugby World Cup Pool D victory over Argentina in Marseille, despite the loss of Tom Curry to a third-minute red card. 

Back-row Curry was red carded via World Rugby’s bunker review system – just as colleagues Owen Farrell and Billy Vunipola were last month – as his yellow card for a head-on-head contact with Juan Cruz Mallia in a tackle after the Argentina full-back had landed from an aerial take, was upgraded to red due to a lack of mitigation in Curry always entering the contact high.

Emiliano Boffelli kicked Argentina into the lead at that point, but a dismal Pumas performance in the remainder of the Test and a magnificent display of drop-goal execution from Ford – landing three, and two from a considerable distance – saw Steve Borthwick’s men head to half-time a player down but nine points up.

England – Pens: Ford (10, 46, 54, 59, 66, 75). Drop-Goals: Ford (27, 31, 37).

Argentina – Tries: Bruni (79). Cons: Boffelli (80). Pens: Boffelli (5).

Argentina fly-half Santiago Carreras had also spent 10 minutes off the park for a needless late hit on Ford, with Michael Cheika’s side seemingly incapable of taking advantage of the glorious opportunity presented to them, struggling in all facets, with Ford punishing each penalty infringement in the second half for a bizarrely comfortable win.

What’s next?

England next face Japan on Sunday September 17, in their second Rugby World Cup Pool D clash, at the Stade de Nice (8pm kick off BST).

Argentina are next in action vs Samoa on Friday September 22, for their second Rugby World Cup Pool D clash, at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in Saint-Etienne (4.45pm kick off BST).
