"We’ve came here to face a competitive squad. It’s always good to face Argentina and this chance won’t be the exception," Jenkins told www.rugbyfun.com.

"Argentina are a very strong team, especially their pack of forwards. However, the three-quarters also play well."

Jenkins revealed his side will be look to counter the Argentinians’ physical threat.

"The idea is to play different than the Pumas."

"Argentina have a physical way to play, like South Africa.
