JONNY May scored his ninth international try to help England claim a dramatic victory in Argentina as their two-match summer tour began in spectacular fashion last night.

Debutant Denny Solomona scored with less than two minutes to go to snatch a 38-34 success for Eddie Jones’ side in San Juan.

Chiseldon’s May touched down early in the second half to put a youthful England team back in front following a narrow half-time deficit.

That score from the Gloucester winger added to an earlier touchdown from fellow wideman Marland Yarde before fly-half George Ford got England’s third try of the day, to go alongside 18 points with the boot.

Despite those scores, England still trailed 34-33 in the dying stages before Solomona snatched a sensational win with a fine solo try at the death.

England head coach Jones said: "What we did show was real team ethic today. Our young guys came into a difficult situation, we were chasing the game. They did their job brilliantly which is just fantastic.

"The other thing I liked was that young guys made mistakes but they didn't dwell on those mistakes. That's when you know you have players worth persevering with when they can bounce back.

"I've always thought England has had good players and I'm even more impressed about the youth coming through."

May, who has now won 27 caps for his country, will be hoping to add to that haul and help England complete a 2-0 series win in the second Test next Saturday.
