What’s the team news?

Bath forward Sam Underhill will win his first England cap. The 20-year-old openside flanker, who helped England to a 28-14 win over the Barbarians at Twickenham in May, missed the first Test with a neck injury but has recovered in time to begin his bid for a place in coach Eddie Jones’ 2019 World Cup squad.

Jones has made three changes to the side that won 38-34 in San Juan, with former captain Chris Robshaw returning from an ankle injury to partner Underhill in the back row and Piers Francis starting at inside centre after making his debut from the bench last Saturday.

Making way for the new flankers are Tom Curry and Mark Wilson despite making eye-catching debuts in San Juan, although Wilson is retained on the bench, alongside centre Alex Lozowski.

Underhill, a former England Under-18s captain, is seen by Jones as a potential answer to England’s lengthy search for a genuine openside flanker going back to the retirement of Neil Back.

The former Gloucester academy player was previously unavailable because he has been playing his club rugby in Wales for the Ospreys but became qualified after agreeing to join Bath next season.

Robshaw, who played in 12 out of Jones’ first 13 games in charge, will make his first appearance for his country since December, having missed the entire Six Nations with a shoulder problem and the first Test against the Pumas with an ankle injury.

England team to play Argentina:

M Brown (Harlequins); M Yarde (Harlequins), H Slade (Exeter), P Francis (Northampton), J May (Gloucester); G Ford (Bath), D Care (Harlequins); E Genge (Leicester), D Hartley (Northampton, capt), H Williams (Exeter), C Ewels (Bath), J Launchbury (Wasps), C Robshaw (Harlequins), S Underhill (Bath), N Hughes (Wasps).

Replacements: J Singleton (Worcester), M Mullan (Wasps), W Collier (Harlequins), N Isiekwe (Saracens), M Wilson (Newcastle), J Maunder (Exeter), A Lozowski (Saracens), D Solomona (Sale).

What happened in the first Test?

Quite simply, it was epic. A young, inexperienced England side snatched a remarkable 38-34 win with a dramatic try from Denny Solomona, England’s fourth, in the 79th minute.

England brought on all but one of their replacements in San Juan, which means they blooded 10 new caps, the most since 1956.

Level at 31-all, England fell behind to a dropped goal by Juan Martin Hernandez in the 77th minute but replacement Solomona, making his debut, crossed the line and George Ford converted.

Each side scored four tries in a thrilling game, which the home side led 17-13 at half-time.

With tries from Emiliano Boffelli, Tomas Lavanini, Jeronimo de la Fuente and Joaquin Tuculet, Argentina thought they had done enough to win.

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.

What are they saying?

Danny Care on England’s exciting talent coming through:

“I think people are right to be excited. You can see the young lads coming through are a different breed these days.

“I thought they were all brilliant at the weekend, I could not speak more highly of them. We know it was not perfect and there are a lot of things to work on, but to have that many young lads in and the team to be thrown together in such a short space of time I thought it was a great result.

“The future’s brilliant. They are great players and they’ve all got a great mindset. They’ve come in, they’ve grafted and fitted into the system straight away.

“They had to learn pretty quickly in training how Eddie and the coaches want it done and expect it done. To get a win like that is great but we need to back it up now and win 2-0.”
