Jones is not at all bothered – while urging England to accept pressure – In addition to their victory in west London in 2006, the Pumas were victorious against England at Twickenham for only the second occasion in the venue’s history.
On a day that was difficult for England, Argentina’s Australian head coach Michael Cheika defeated Jones, an old friend, a compatriot, and an enemy. This victory was Cheika’s first ever in a test match.
Emiliano Boffelli kicked six penalties and scored a wonderful try, with Santiago Carreras rushing in after picking up a loose ball. Boffelli also claimed the try. Although England scored tries thanks to scores from Joe Cokanasiga and Jack van Poortvliet and Owen Farrell’s two conversions and five penalties, the home team was ultimately unsuccessful and struggled throughout the day with unforced mistakes.
Jones stated that England were unaffected by the defeat and pledged to fix England’s myriad of errors in double-quick time. England’s litany of blunders On Saturday, England will play Japan at Twickenham, and Jones anticipates a very different performance from his team the following weekend.
“I think at moments we played extremely well; but, then we made some fundamental mistakes; some individual blunders that kept on bringing them back into the game,” said Jones. “It was a frustrating game; yet, I thought at times we played really well.”
They were successful in their attempt to intercept the pass, which provided them with some further space to breathe. Therefore, it is difficult to pinpoint exactly what the issue is.
But it’s a fantastic chance for us now because we’re under the pump a bit, which is good, and I believe we’ll answer very well, so I’m looking forward to it. “But it’s a wonderful opportunity for us now, because we’re under the pump a bit.
“I have absolutely no cause for anxiety since I believe that even if we play that game a hundred times, the outcome might be completely different each time. There is no need for us to be concerned with confidence; all that is required is accurate repetition.
“We were able to do enough positive things out there. We also engaged in some foolish behaviour, which is an unavoidable consequence of our tendency to strive for perfection.
The mentality and resolve to be the best that we can be is extremely admirable, but the fact that we are human means that we will make errors from time to time.
“We created enough line breaks to win maybe two games, but we simply couldn’t finish them off,” said the coach after the loss. “We just have to polish it up a bit.”
Jones disclosed that he did not feel the need to jump into the argumentative front foot with the media, simply because he felt relaxed with England’s overall performance despite the loss. This was the sole reason for Jones’s decision.
The victory was only Argentina’s second ever at Twickenham, and they had to fight for it.
According to Jones, “Look, I’m not sitting here thinking we’ve got very strong difficulties within the squad.”
“I believed that we were in complete control of the game for the majority of it. If I did not believe that we controlled the most of the game, I would be thinking that these guys have a decent right to get stuck into us, and then we would have a bit of a fight with each other.
“But I don’t need a fight tonight because I feel like the team went into the game and played how they wanted to play, but we made some foolish mistakes,” she said. “But I do need a fight tomorrow.”
And all of those things are quite amenable to modification. They can all be controlled, and there aren’t any major structural problems with the way our game is set up.
It’s 11 months till the World Cup, dude. A lot can happen in 11 months, and a lot can happen in a week. A lot can happen in 11 months.
Manu Tuilagi was forced to leave the game in the second half, but Jones was left to trust that the Sale centre had not sustained any injuries that would be long-term.
According to Jones, “he had a blister so it caused him to perform a little bit differently.” Although the blister is causing him some discomfort, we are not very concerned about his condition at this time.
