Eddie Jones insists Argentinas season-ending assault on England at Twickenham will be inspired by their determination to avoid a tough Rugby World Cup group.The exhausted Pumas face the challenge of lifting themselves for a final time in a year that has seen the squad complete over 50 long-haul flights due to their Rugby Championship commitments and Jaguares teams involvement in Super Rugby.Saturdays outcome could have far-reaching repercussions, with Argentina positioned ninth in the global rankings with the potential to climb as high as fifth should they win, thereby placing them among the second seeds when the draw for Japan 2019 is made in Kyoto on May 10.Defeat at Twickenham, however, could lead to the type of brutal World Cup pool which resulted in Englands demise last autumn, prompting Jones to warn his England team they will face opponents who are full of beans.The World Cup draw is a massive source of motivation for Argentina. If you get into a pool with tier one countries, then one team is going to miss out on the next stage, Jones said.Because of that we know that when they come to Twickenham, they will not be lacking in motivation.Theyve had a very strenuous season but theyll come to Twickenham full of beans and ready to play.Theyre a proud team and theyre coming to Twickenham, which is arguably the home of rugby. Its a big stage and theyll want to put their best foot forward.Argentinas globe-trotting season has not been confined to the Rugby Championship. Their first match of the autumn was staged in Tokyo, where they emerged 54-20 winners, before immediately travelling to Great Britain where they have succumbed to defeats at the hands of Wales and Scotland.Neal Hatley, Englands scrum coach, believes the prospect of one last hurrah will infuse tired Pumas legs with renewed energy.No matter who youre playing, any team that come to Twickenham really want to have a pop, Hatley said.England at Twickenham -- theyll be right up for it. Im sure the long-haul flights have had an effect, but theyve been in Europe for a while now, so theyll have got used to normal sleeping patterns.For them its a case of one last hurrah before a bit of down time, so fatigue wont be a massive issue for them.England are targeting a 13th successive Test victory -- 11 have been secured under Jones -- that will leave them one short of the national record sequence of 14, which can be equalled if Argentina and Australia are toppled over the next nine days.It was Sir Clive Woodwards World Cup winners who established the milestone in 2002-03, but Jones sees no value in such statistics.The only talk of records is in the media. There is no talk about it in this team, because were not interested in records, were interested in getting better, Jones said.Every time we train and get together is an opportunity to get better. Our aim is to be the number one team in the world and you do that by getting better. Jeff Samardzija Jersey .

After blowing what would have been the Indians biggest win this season, Clevelands closer bolted before answering any questions. He ducked out. He didnt finish anything well Monday night. Perez gave up Alex Avilas three-run homer in the ninth inning as the Detroit Tigers rallied for a 4-2 win over the Indians to increase their lead in the AL Central to four games over Cleveland. Perez (4-2), who became a distraction earlier this season when he was arrested on misdemeanour drug charges, was brought in to protect a 2-0 lead. But the right-hander, pitching his in his third straight game, didnt retire a batter and walked dejectedly to Clevelands dugout in the ninth after giving up Avilas shot as Indians fans booed him mercilessly. Perez quickly dressed after the game and left his teammates to answer what went wrong. "We gotta win those games, thats how I see it," said centre fielder Michael Bourn, who made one of four excellent defensive plays by the Indians. "Thats a tough team over there, granted. But thats a swing game. Its not the end of the world. Its not the end of the season, but we want those games." On the same day a year ago in Detroit, Perez, who had recorded 11 straight saves since coming off the disabled list, gave up five runs in the 10th inning as the Indians lost 10-8 to the Tigers. That loss came in an 11-game losing streak and during a month in which the Indians went 5-24 and fell from contention. Manager Terry Francona believes the team can bounce back after a demoralizing defeat. "It hurt, but well show up tomorrow," Francona said. "We certainly need to be resilient and weve shown that before. If we allow it to get in the way then were not the team I thought we were." Detroit was three outs away from having its lead in the AL Central cut to two games by the second-place Indians before the comeback, which eased a difficult day in which the Tigers learned they would be without All-Star shortstop Jhonny Peralta for his involvement in the Biogenesis drug case. "It feels good after all the stuff that happened before the game," centre fielder Torii Hunter said. "We went out there and battled. We kept our focus and were professionals about it. We did what were capable of doing." After Victor Martinezs RBI single made it 2-1, Perez walked Andy Dirks before Avila drove a 1-0 pitch over the wall in left-centre for his ninth homer, stunning a Cleveland crowd ready to celebrate the teams biggest win this season. The Indians fell to 3-10 against the Tigers, who have beeaten them in nine of the last 10 matchups.dddddddddddd Cleveland also had its home winning streak snapped at 11. "We cant depend on whoever it is out there to knock them out first and think were going to win the division," Bourn said. "Weve got to do it ourselves. Thats the only way you can do it. Its not an easy task, but it can be done, but youve got to be able to knock them out." Al Alburquerque (2-2) got one in the eighth and Joaquin Benoit worked the ninth for his 13th save. Detroit starter Anibal Sanchez struck out 11 in 7 2-3 innings, and was in line to take a tough loss before the Tigers stormed back for their 13th win in 14 games. Clevelands Corey Kluber had blanked Detroits big bats for 7 1-3 innings and set the tone in a crucial four-game series before the Indians problematic bullpen blew it. "Kluber was filthy," Hunter said. "That guy is nasty. We were scratching our heads like, What can we do to get this guy?" Detroits comeback also spoiled a great defensive effort by the Indians, who got excellent plays from Bourn, left fielder Michael Brantley and All-Star second baseman Jason Kipnis. "Up until the ninth, we had played such a good game," Francona said. Kluber limited the Tigers to six singles and got some excellent defence, but the Indians couldnt close out a game that was within their grasp. The right-hander settled in after a somewhat shaky start and held the ALs top hitting team in check. Detroits Miguel Cabrera, back in the lineup after missing a few games with hip and abdominal problems, went 1 for 4 -- he was walked intentionally in the ninth -- and laboured noticeably any time he tried to run. The Indians took a 2-0 lead in the fourth on Carlos Santanas RBI double, a shot off the right-field wall that just missed being a two-run homer. Jason Giambis RBI single gave the Indians a 1-0 lead in the second, when Tigers centre fielder Austin Jackson robbed Lonnie Chisenhall of a possible homer. Brantley singled with one out and stole second. With two down, Giambi, closing in on 2,000 career hits, delivered his run-scoring single to centre. Chisenhall followed with a drive to centre that Jackson snared with a leaping grab at the wall in front of the Indians bullpen. NOTES: Brantley recorded his AL-leading 10th assist in the first when he gunned down Hunter at second trying to stretch a single. ... Santana is batting .335 with runners in scoring position. ... Indians ace Justin Masterson (13-7) will face Justin Verlander (11-8) in Tuesdays game. ... Clevelands rotation has a 2.09 ERA in the last 24 games.
