Yarde bags debut brace
Marland Yarde marked his international debut with two tries as England stormed to a seven-try 51-26 victory and their first ever Test series clean sweep in Argentina.
Kyle Eastmond, making his first England start, touched down for a dazzling solo score and there were also maiden Test tries for fly-half Freddie Burns and hooker Rob Webber.
England's victory was founded on some shuddering defence and a dominant scrummaging display - epitomised by man of the match Joe Marler - towards the end of the first half, which earned them two penalty tries.
England had been forced into a change just hours before kick-off when Christian Wade was called up by the British and Irish Lions, opening the way for Jonny May to make his debut on the right wing.
Martin Bustos Moyano, who had kicked so poorly in Salta, opened a 12-6 lead for the hosts but the game turned England's way when Eastmond tackled the Pumas full-back over his own try-line. England drove the Puma scrum backwards and referee Nigel Owens awarded the penalty try, with Marler receiving the congratulations of his team-mates. Burns' conversion edged England ahead for the first time.
It was not long before England did have their second try, with Burns stretching for the line after their most fluid attack of the half and some incisive build-up play down the right from Eastmond and Yarde.
England piled forward again, hunting a third try before the interval. Bustos Moyano was sin-binned for diving in off his feet at a ruck five metres out. Captain Tom Wood called for the scrum, the England set piece sent Argentina into reverse gear again - and referee Owens marched under the posts for a second time.
Argentina knew they could not break down England's shuddering defensive system so threw their heavy ball-carriers at the men in purple, grinding out the yards with a series of strong pick-and-goes until Montero charged over to score. For a moment, the Puma support hoped for a comeback. But those ambitions were shredded as England scored three tries in 10 minutes and Yarde began to grow in influence.
The London Irish wing led an England counter-attack and Webber was on hand to charge over the line. Yarde then took centre stage with a delightful finish out wide, beating two defenders before finishing with a Chris Ashton-style swallow dive. England were now in complete control and Eastmond ran in their sixth try, dancing through the Pumas defence and beating at least three defenders to score under the posts.
After suffering that three-try salvo, Argentina battered their way through England's defence again and Leonardi burrowed his way over. But England and Yarde had the final say. Stephen Myler, on for his debut, orchestrated a slick backs move and Eastmond's inside ball sent Yarde searing through a gap for his second try.
