ENGLAND are set to play George Ford as fly-half, with captain Owen Farrell at inside centre, against Argentina at the ongoing 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.

The showdown is at Tokyo Stadium on Saturday.

With England seeking three World Cup wins in a row, coach Eddie Jones has been quoted by the BBC as saying “Argentina are always about the physical contest.

“They’ve got good players, they’ve got a reasonably settled way of playing. They enjoy World Cups more than the other major teams, because there’s such a pride and there’s such a passion.

“The challenge for us is to show the same level of intensity and passion at the start of the game.”

Although England are well on course, after beating the United States and Tonga, there are high stakes for a match that has already been labeled “a war”.
