England recapture Churchill Cup
Tom Voyce in action against Argentina
Voyce scored two of his side's five tries in Edmonton
Wasps full-back Tom Voyce ran in two tries as England A made light work of Argentina with a comprehensive 45-16 Churchill Cup final win in Edmonton.

James Simpson-Daniel, Paul Sackey and Andy Gomarsall also crossed as the tourists reclaimed the crown they lost to New Zealand Maori last year.

Leicester fly-half Andy Goode gave another mixed display.

He missed just one of his six shots at goal but was sent to the sin bin for the second match in succession.

Skipper Pat Sanderson was delighted with the result and said: "Winning is massively important.

"Every time you play, you play to win. My motivation hasn't been to get into the Test team, it's been to win the Churchill Cup for England.

"It's great to win the tournament. We'll go home happy because of that. We came out to do a job and now that it's done, we can welcome the end of a long season."

A crowd of 17,000 watched the final and Sanderson added: "It's very important that the Canadian public get to see international teams and high-level performances from athletes.

"The Americans and Canadians have certainly improved since last year."
