Francis scores in England win

Saturday, June 17, 2017

Piers Francis scored his first international try as England completed a 2-0 series win over Argentina, future club mate Dylan Hartley lifting an umpteenth trophy following an entertaining 35-25 victory in Santa Fe.

It was a good evening all round for Saintsmen. On his first start, Francis went from try assister last week to try scorer this, while Hartley became the third highest capped player in England history in his 86th Test match.

With Charlie Ewels, Danny Care and Dave Collier also crossing, a game in which the two sides went tit-for-tat eventually swung in the visitors' favour, in the process securing the series despite the absence of a raft of key starters on British and Irish Lions duty in New Zealand.
