"It was a really tough game, they really challenged us but it was a great result for the team. It was probably the worst sets of conditions I've ever been involved with. The pitch held up well but the wind and rain were shocking to be fair!
"It was never going to be a pretty game in those conditions but we showed we could win in that way.
Thanks for all the messages, gutted not to get on. Great shift from the boys in tough conditions to grind out the win! Onto the semis!- Billy Burns (@BillyBurns10) June 10, 2014
"That obviously sets us up now with Ireland on Sunday and then, hopefully after that, a game against either New Zealand or South Africa."
Burns started on match day 2 against Australia, in an impressive win for the English and it was an occasion he enjoyed and learnt a lot from.
"It's not every day you get to play a southern hemisphere side, so it was a massive game for us as a squad.
"It was probably one of the quickest paced games I've ever played in. The ball seemed like it was in play for ages and you had to constantly keep on your toes.
"The boys turned it on and put in a great performance to get the win."
England coach Nick Walshe made twelve changes for today's clash with the Pumas, and the win against the South Americans with a much-changed line up showed the strength in depth in the England squad.
"It really does show the quality in our whole squad that all the boys can come in and make a difference.
"We've said from day 1 out here we want it to be a real squad effort rather than just a team effort, and results like the one today show that we can really do that."
Away from the field, Burns is really enjoying his time in New Zealand, but the quick turnarounds between games mean that the focus is constantly on the rugby.
"We went to watch the first team play on Saturday which was a great experience despite the result. But due to the quick turnarounds between our pool games we've always been quickly readying ourselves for what has been a really tough pool.
"We've been able to get out and about around Takepuna and go for coffee and explore. But of course we are out to play and keep our heads firmly focused on that.
"With the second test coming up, we'll give them all of our support from the team room on Saturday. There's a good second test ahead with some of the other players arriving."
Family ties in New Zealand make it extra-special for Billy and his family, with elder brother Freddie starting in the first test against the All Blacks.
"It was a massive occasion for him, I'm massively proud of him and how he got on. I'm always proud when he pulls on an England shirt but playing out here against the All Blacks is a different league.
"We've tried to catch up when we can, we've done a couple of interviews together as well.
"We'll try and catch up tomorrow before they fly off to Dunedin for the second test which will be good to wish him luck."
The win today sets up a semi-final date with Ireland on Sunday and Burns is expecting a tough match against their Six Nations rivals who beat Fiji this morning.
"They've performed very well over here so we know it will be a tough game as we know from our game against them in the Six Nations.
"We have to be on point and have a big couple of days training leading up to the game. We're excited and we'll enjoy qualifying this evening, but we have to get our preparation right for the game if we are to have a chance."
