- Steve Borthwick’s side beat Pumas 27-10 in World Cup opener
- ‘We have not cracked it but it’s a step in the right direction’
Ellis Genge has expressed his belief that England can win the Rugby World Cup after silencing their critics by beginning the tournament with a defiant victory against Argentina.
England went into the match on Saturday as underdogs after a desperate warm-up campaign and, despite losing Tom Curry to a red card inside three minutes, Steve Borthwick’s side produced the finest performance of his tenure with George Ford kicking all their points in a 27-10 victory against the Pumas in Marseille.
