Argentina to play "home" rugby Test in England

12:17 pm on 14 December 2008

Argentina's rugby union is looking to raise money by playing one of its "home" Tests against England next year in England.

Argentina was set down to play England in a two-Test series in Argentina in June.

But it has now asked the English union if it can transfer one of the Tests to England as it would be more financially lucrative.

England rugby bosses say they are happy with the idea, but will probably play the game away from London in a bid to boost rugby"s profile in other parts of the country.
