England coach Eddie Jones loves to hire mind games against his resistance.

England coach Eddie Jones has dismissed Jaguares Super Rugby influence on Argentina before the Rugby World Cup.

The South American outfit made their first Super Rugby final at the back of an excellent season before being knocked out 19-3 by the master's Crusaders in Christchurch last weekend.

Many, including All Black's coach Steve Hansen, believe that the stable development of the Jaguar in the Southern Hemisphere Provincial Extravaganza will benefit Argentina's World Cup cause, especially with the page stacked with so many Pumas, which now draw on test jerseys.

The Jaguar had an impressive Super Rugby campaign before they came short against the Crusaders in the title game.

The Jaguar had an impressive Super Rugby campaign before they came short against the Crusaders in the title game.

But Jones, whose English team has teamed up with Argentina at the World Cup in Japan, does not buy into the hype and cannot resist a dig in Jaguares' committee policy.

"Do you think if England played Super Rugby, we would be in the final? I guarantee we would be," said Jones Rugby-paper in Great Britain.

"Argentina is a very good team, but [the] Jaguares do well in Super Rugby is not enough to convince me that they are better than that.

"We take them seriously and play them with respect. They are a good World Cup page. Traditionally, they play their best in the World Cup."

England play Tonga and the US in their opening of World Cup pool matches before turning Argentina and France into what might be a difficult qualification test with only the top two teams moving on to the quarterfinals.

The Crusaders defeated Argentine's Jaguares on Saturday night and claimed their third consecutive Super Rugby title. A victory party was held at the Christchurch Art Gallery.

Jones is under pressure to deliver on his big job after four years of rebuilding the dented England machine that could not come out of pool games as hosts in 2015.

In contrast, Argentina has made the semi-finals at the last tournament, and with the support of Sanzaar seems to have made significant gains since then.
