England vs Argentina: What time does it start, when is kick-off, what TV channel is it on and where can I watch it?

England return to international action for the first time this season as they take on Argentina in the first of three autumn Tests at Twickenham, with Australia and Samoa set to follow over the next three weekends.

The clash will be the third time that England and Argentina have met this year, with Eddie Jones’ side claiming a 2-0 series victory in the summer despite taking a hugely inexperienced squad to South America due to the British and Irish Lions call-ups.

However, this time around England are back to almost full strength, although Jones has elected to rest two of his most influential players in Owen Farrell and Maro Itoje due to their “exceptional” schedules. The likes of Anthony Watson, Courtney Lawes and Dan Cole all return though, while Elliot Daly has somehow recovered from a slight knee ligament tear two weeks ago to take his place in the starting line-up.

One player who will not take a part though is Sale Sharks flanker Tom Curry. The 19-year-old was named on the replacements’ bench by Jones, only to dislocate a bone in his wrist in training on Thursday that required surgery and has subsequently ruled him out for three months.

In Curry’s absence, Sam Simmonds is called up to the squad and the Exeter Chiefs back-row could make his debut on Saturday if he comes on.
