Rugby U


Good afternoon and welcome to coverage of England v Argentina at Twickenham to start off the Autumn Internationals. I'm Mel (@MissMelanie_H). First things first, I enjoy watching rugby and know the rules but I am hardly an expert on the technical side of things. Be gentle if I make any silly mistakes! Please! Watch the full match replay below!

The weather is not great at Twickenham today - overcast and damp. Not actually raining right now but it looks like it might do any moment. Sky interviewed one of the Argentine players and he suggested that the weather might help England more than them.

Kick off is at 3pm and I will be back just before that with more updates.

Jerusalem blares out over the tannoy as the teams come in to the stadium and the sun has decided to make an appearance as well.

We start with a minute's silence for Remembrance Day impeccably observed before the national anthems. Agrentina's first and then God Save The Queen.

ENG 0 - 0 ARG England kick us off.

ENG 0 - 0 ARG Argentina are in possession but have to come from deep in their half. Kicked and Brown takes it to start an England attack. Penalty to England as Argentina didn't release in the tackle. Ford is going for goal... Off the posts but not a good clearance from Argentina.
