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.
