Share

Marland Yarde, Jonny May and Ford had scored England's tries, with the excellent kicking of Ford, who scored 23 points, keeping them in the match. Our young guys came into a hard situation, we were chasing the game.

The former Super League record-breaking winger was introduced for his debut 10 minutes into the second half with England leading 23-17.

Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the performance from an English point of view was how Eddie Jones' young side did not falter when they received setback after setback throughout the game - they kept going and were led by the brilliant George Ford. It is not easy to have one good performance but good players back performances up.

Ford, voted man of the match by England Rugby fans, converted for his 23rd points of the game as England sealed a memorable victory to get their two-Test tour off to a winning start.

"The other thing I liked was that young guys made mistakes but they didn't dwell on those mistakes".

"When you are playing a full-strength Argentina team, I think it is one of the best team efforts I have been associated with". For the vast majority of the game Argentina were in control and looked more threatening and so our ability to stick with them and then take our opportunities and turn them into points was excellent.

"It's 1-0 but we want to go away with a 2-0 win, so we will work hard on Monday and try to get another result next week".

The 23-year-old Solomona was one of 10 new caps in the side and coach Eddie Jones was delighted with the performance from England. "If you see him tackling tackle bags in the streets of Buenos Aires you'll know why".

"Henry Slade showed some nice classy touches, which we have seen sporadically but we saw more of it in one game today".

LEAGUE convert Denny Solomona scored with his first touch of the ball on his debut to give England a thrilling win over Argentina in the first Test.

"It was a hell of a Test match, end-to-end stuff, and that's what you're going to get with Argentina", added Care. "The big thing for young players is being able to back it up". However, before Solomona received all the plaudits he was certainly the villain as he got caught out for two of Argentina's tries in the second half after making his introduction.
