Quote from: marty34 on September 09, 2023, 11:15:17 PMEvery competitive game against decent opposition that the Argies play, they are underdogs. They were going into this game as even money, slight favs with some. After 3 mins they became hot favs. They knew they had to win, but forced everything. Couldn't handle the expectation. Countlesss errors.
Argentina very poor tonight.
After beating strong teams this year, they were very disappointing. Especially as England went a man down after 2 mins.
People use 'bottled' too often when it just happens the opposition are better on the day. But this was 100% a bottle job. All England did was keep it simple and take points when available. And that was enough against a team that was shooting themselves in the foot continuously.
As for Ireland, it was job done. Sexton very impressive. Bundee great. And plenty to improve on. Earls can't start any more though, hopefully that's the last we see of the great man.
