Philip Bernie, BBC head of TV sport said: “We know that there is always a keen audience to watch England's rugby internationals, so we're delighted to be covering their two Tests in Argentina, who will provide a strong challenge. This adds to our considerable regular portfolio of international rugby live on BBC television.”
