Sante Fe - England defeated Argentina 35-25 in a Santa Fe thriller on Saturday to clinch a 2-0 victory in their two-Test series.   

As it happened: Argentina v England

The tourists, level at 25-25 with 16 minutes left, finished stronger as prop Will Collier barged over for a try that flyhalf George Ford converted.

Ford sealed success for England, lacking 30 of their best players, primarily due to British and Irish Lions call-ups, with a drop goal six minutes from time.

Scorers:

Argentina

Tries: Joaquin Tuculet, Pablo Matera, Emiliano Boffelli

Conversions: Nicolas Sanchez (2)

Penalties: Sanchez (2)

England

Tries: Charlie Ewels, Piers Francis, Danny Care, Will Collier

Conversions: George Ford (3)
