The flags are out at Mill Farm as we gear up for the Rugby World Cup this weekend where England face Argentina in their third pool match. England are top of Group C with two wins from two while Argentina are second after a win and a defeat.
Mako Vunipola, Henry Slade and Jack Nowell have all been carrying injuries throughout the World Cup. All three players are in contention to face Argentina according to England attack coach Scott Wiesemantal but it is likely that if they were selected it would be from the bench.
Piers Francis was cited for a high tackle during the opening seconds of England’s second pool match against the USA. He will face a disciplinary panel and it is probable that Francis will be banned for a number weeks which would rule him out of England’s last two pool matches against Argentina and France.
The Pumas made four changes from the loss against France for their second match against Tonga. Fly-half Benjamin Urdapilleta, winger Santiago Carreras, hooker Julian Montoya and number eight Tomas Lezana all were named as starters by coach Mario Ledesma.
Established starter Nicolas Sanchez and former captain Augustin Creevy will both be trying to force their way back into the starting side to face England. The Argentina squad is currently healthy with no major injury concerns.
The action gets underway at 9.00am and to ensure you have the best experience, we have an early license as well as *free bacon sandwiches from 9-11am. Book your table to guarantee the best seats in the house or just turn up.
