A rusty England managed to secure a win over Argentina as they began their autumn campaign in a disjointed fashion.

The team came away with a 21-8 win on Saturday but head coach Eddie Jones didn't seem happy at all. And if Argentina hadn't missed four fairly easy penalties and a conversion, his mood may have been more fraught yet.

2006 was the last time Argentina had a victory over England, and with their only win all year coming at home against Georgia, it was clear they were visiting Twickenham as the underdogs. Or at least, that's what we all thought.

England started well and though Ford missed his first shot at goal, he made no mistake with the next two as England took a 6-3 lead - with Boffelli slotting a penalty in response. Nathan Hughes scored the first try for England in the 23rd minute then made the scoreline 11-3 to England.

However, fans soon started taking to social media as Argentina was dominating the territory and possession early in the second half. Even head coach Jones started to show signs of frustration with his team's performance.

A combination of errors and unusual choices from England, such as kicking towards the corner rather than the goal from a 53rd-minute scrum penalty had fans in an uproar on social media. But what had the biggest response on Twitter was Eddie Jones comment during the game.

It soon made it's way onto social media when cameras caught Jones in a rage with his team's performance. It happened in the 62nd minute of the game when England win a scrum, which is then brought down and referee, Marius van der Westuizen, asks the forwards to reset.

The cameras then turn to the England head coach who appears to say: "How f***ing stupid are we?" - and fans were loving it on Twitter.

And this is how England fans reacted - apologies for the bad language. Blame Jones, not us!

How do you think England performed this weekend? Could they have done better, or was it just one of them days? Let us know what you think, in the comments.
