England vs Argentina Betting Tips Rugby World Cup 2023
The English come into the Rugby World Cup 2023 from finishing fourth in the 6 Nations with 10 points, one of the poorest campaigns of the national team in this tournament. They finished 17 points behind the champion, Ireland. It is worth mentioning that the Rose sacked their coach Eddie Jones in December and is rebuilding their image under Steve Borthwick. On the other hand, the Argentines have just finished last in the Rugby Championship in which New Zealand maintained their hegemony by becoming champions. Los Pumas obtained a historic victory in Christchurch when they won 25-18 against the All Blacks.
How England and Los Pumas play and Statistics
England’s style of play, true to their history, is based on a neat set of hands to finish their moves up front. The team is not the fearsome one of 2003, far from it. Today we are talking about another team that does not have much hierarchy and presents some important defensive flaws. The Pumas, under Cheika, have taken a more combative character and where they fight until the end. The team has good forwards and backs that make the difference. One of the strengths of the team is Emiliano Boffelli’s kicking, which is key for the deliveries to the posts.
