What on earth was Diego Maradona doing in the coaches box with Eddie Jones?

Thought the assault on Nathan Hughes by the bloke in the orange hat was despicable & he should have seen red. Could have ended his career. On another note, BBC....pleeeeese give Guscott the elbow. The guys as dull as ditch water with his smarmy monotone droning. Love Danny Care BTW, such energy & a great tempo.

It was a perfectly legal tackle, the offence was offside.

 Was it legal in context?  Lavinini knew exactly what he was doing. Just because he used his shoulder and wrapped his arms does not mean there was no intent to smash the knee of a vulnerable player.
Is it a coincidence  that Lavinini has only just returned to playing after several months out with a ruptured ACL?

Legal or not, it was disgusting, a typical Argie cheap shot, cowardly, akin to a "studs up" over the ball footy tackle. Big Nath did well not to fill him in.

Nice bit of xenophobia there, well done.

I find that kind of xenophobic comment embarrassing in the extreme. I'm in Buenos Aires now having followed the tour and I can honestly say that I've never been to another country where the people are as warm, friendly and welcoming as Argentina. I've been to a lot of countries as well. Many people in Britain could learn an awful lot from the way they've treated us - and almost all of the England tour party would say the same.  No wonder we're hated by lots of other nations. As I said, embarrassing.

Let's keep this to sport...I did say "typically". I know several who have been to Argentina & would back up your views. However, put those mild mannered in a SPORTING arena & it's a win at all costs mentality.

Saw the second test on catch up and now understand EJ's comments as backs not that great at times. Ford played well but no real pressure on him. Forwards powerful with a few good props in competition next season.
 
Argentina butchered a couple of good chances but Eng defence good.

You do realise you are embarrassing yourself with such ridiculous comments don't you?
