Eddie Jones insisted England’s problems are solvable after they got off to a humble start to the autumn in a 30-29 loss to Argentina.
Los Pumas halted a 10-game losing streak dating back to 2009 and achieved just their second victory at Twickenham after Emiliano Boffelli scored the winning penalty in the 70th minute.
The rivals meet again in their World Cup opener next year and Jones denied this result is evidence of a deeper malaise within England, who face tougher tests this autumn against New Zealand and South Africa.
“The World Cup is 11 months away and a lot happens in 11 months. Like a lot can happen in a week,” Jones said.
“I’m not sitting here thinking that we have really strong problems within the team. For the most part, I thought we dominated the game.”
“If we didn’t then he might be thinking that people have good rights to mess with us and then we’d have a little fight.
“But I don’t need the fight because I feel like the team came out and played the way they wanted.
“But we made some dumb mistakes and we can turn those things around pretty easily. They’re all controllable. There are no real big structural issues within our game.”
“You always want to have a more powerful attack, always, but sometimes you don’t. Sometimes it takes a little while to get it right.”
“We have to fix it a little bit, but we did enough line breaks to probably win two games, but we didn’t finish them, which is an area we can always improve on.”
“It’s a great opportunity for us now because we’re under a bit of pressure, which is good and I think we’ll respond very well to that. I’m looking forward to it.”
