Argentina have pulled off the win of their lives and beaten England 18-25 at Twickenham, their first win at the ground. It was only a matter of time, really, as they have been getting stronger as a team for a while now.

I didn't watch the game, and have only read reviews of it, but it sounds like England were their own worst enemies. They just can't seem to fire as a unit. BBC Sport gives the England player ratings.

Corry says the players are to blame, and Robinson's vowed not to quit. But what will it take for the team to pull their socks up?

I suppose one face-saving fact is that we didn't get the thumping from the All Blacks last week that France endured this weekend... They went down 3-47 in Paris, only managing one drop goal to the AB's seven tries. Merde encoure!

Meanwhile, Ireland beat the Springboks 32-15, so South Africa will be coming to Twickenham next weekend, looking to put some points on the board with even more determination.

Let's hope the pain doesn't continue... not sure if I can watch!
