Statistics against Test match opponents

The 1990 England rugby union tour of Argentina was a series of matches played in July and August 1990 in Argentina by the England national rugby union team. It was the second tour of Argentina by England and was apparently arranged without, the tour manager Geoff Cooke's, knowledge and at an inconvenient time of the year for the England players in July and August.[citation needed] For this reason, eight England players declined the invitation to make the trip, and the only seasoned internationals on the tour were Will Carling, Richard Hill, Wade Dooley, Brain Moore, Jeff Probyn and Peter Winterbottom. Who is to say which of them, with the advantage of hindsight, inwardly wished that they had too had declined the invitation.
