JACK Nowell scored a try on his first appearance of the 2019 Rugby World Cup as England booked their place in the knockout stages with a comfortable 39-10 win over Argentina.

Newlyn-born Jack, 26, came off the bench to make his first appearance since limping out of Exeter Chiefs' Premiership final defeat to Saracens in May.

Nowell, who scored a hat-trick against Uruguay in his only other World Cup appearance in 2015, replaced Anthony Watson in the 68th minute and scored six minutes later, going over in the corner after cutting in front the right and bouncing off three Argentine players.

Nowell's fellow Cornishman, Luke Cowan-Dickie, scored his third try of the tournament to complete England's comprehensive victory in the final minute of the game, dotting down for a shove-over try as the clock struck the 80-minute mark.

Cornish Pirates hooker Cowan-Dickie, who scored a try in each of England's previous two wins against Tonga and USA, was also introduced as a second-half replacement, coming on for Jamie George in the 65th minute.

England were helped on their way to a comfortable bonus-point win after second row Tomas Lavanini was sent off by referee Nigel Owens in the 17th minute for landing a shoulder on Owen Farrell's jaw – the second game in a row that a man has been sent off for a tackle on the England man.

Benjamin Urdapilleta put the Pumas in front with an early penalty, but that was as good as it got for the South American side as Jonny May replied with an unconverted try.

Lavanini's red card followed before Elliot Daly and Ben Youngs added unconverted tries to give England a 15-3 lead at the break.

George Ford scored England's bonus point-sealing try after the break with Farrell landing his first kick of the game to add the extras. Farrell added a penalty before Matias Moroni scored a converted try in reply for Argentina.

Nowell then scored England's fifth in the corner with Farrell's conversion going in off the post, before Cowan-Dickie went over for England sixth and final try late on, with Farrell completing the scoring with the resulting conversion.

England will finish top of Pool C if they beat France in their final pool match next Saturday.

Cornish Pirates hooker Sam Matavesi played 80 minutes of Fiji's thumping 45-10 win over Georgia in their penultimate Pool D game.

Semi Radradra (2), Waisea Nayacalevu, Frank Lomani, Josua Tuisova, Semi Kunatani and Api Ratuniyarawa scored tries as the Flying Fijians kept their slim hopes of reaching the knockout stage alive.

Sam's brother Josh came off the bench to play the final six minutes.
