England Under 20s qualified for the semi final of this year's Junior World Championships following a hard-fought 17-16 win over Argentina in a soaked Albany.
The win made it three wins out of three for the English and saw them qualify for the semi-final play offs and set up a tie with Ireland on Sunday.
After making 12 changes from the win over Australia on match day 2, with Billy Burns named amongst the replacements, and Ross Moriarty rested, Nick Walshe's charges came up against the winless Pumas, and faced tough conditions which made handling hard.
Scoring chances were few and far between but England lead 9-6 going into the break as Northampton Saints fly half Sam Olver converted three penalties in the driving rain. Argentina full back Fernandez converted two of his own.
The first try did come for England midway through the second period, and it was a neat finish by George Catchpole who dived over after a well-timed pass from Aaron Morris as the English pack secured turnover ball.
With possession changing hands regularly and conditions causing regular errors, the Pumas roared back, England were reduced to 14 men when Harry Rudkin was yellow carded with the scrum a mess.
Argentina then took advantage and scored following a quick tap, which Fernandez improved and with ten minutes remaining, the Pumas led.
England didn't panic and the introduction of Henry Taylor at scrum half gave them good field position and with the Argentine defence getting desperate, they conceded a penalty which Olver converted easily with a minute left to secure the game for England, and a place in the semi-final.
Fly-half Billy Burns was named Man of the Match after the 35-14 European Rugby Challenge Cup victory over Stade Rochelais on Thursday evening, and was full of praise for all his team mates for the win after a short turnaround.
Gloucester have been in good form in recent weeks, but Backs Coach Tim Taylor knows that the Cherry and Whites will have to be at their best on Thursday evening (kick off 7:45pm) against a Stade Rochelais side flying high this season.
Speaking to GRTV after the bonus point win over Bristol, back row Lewis Ludlow revealed that despite a tricky first half, Gloucester backed their skills to come through, a faith that was evident in a strong second half showing.
Willi Heinz scored Gloucester's second try as the Cherry and Whites overturned a disappointing first 40 minutes and 0-6 half time deficit, to earn a 26-18 Aviva Premiership victory over Bristol Rugby on Saturday.
Gloucester's much changed side had to overcome conceding an early try on Thursday evening, but responded in style to down Stade Rochelais by 35 points to 14 in the European Rugby Challenge Cup and set up a mouthwatering return fixture next weekend.
After taking 11 points from their last three games in the Aviva Premiership, including bonus point wins against Wasps and Bristol, Gloucester will be looking to continue their good form when they welcome La Rochelle to Kingsholm.
