ABSTRACT
ENGLAND'S World Cup 2015 plans are undergoing fierce scrutiny in Argentina from the sporting guru who played a big part in helping British cycling achieve Olympic glory. Matt Parker, recruited by the Rugby Football Union as head of athletic performance, is among a 20-strong backroom staff using the tour of South America to plot the World Cup campaign. Parker was behind the rise of Sir Bradley Wiggins and others, and he is on his first rugby tour after making a name in sports science for his attention to detail. He advises athletes on all aspects of preparation, from sleep to hygiene. As England prepare for Saturday's second Test after their 32-3 win over Argentina in the first game, Parker's impressions of their young squad have been very favourable. 'I thought this sport was behind the rest of the world — it isn't,' he said. 'England have taken on the best of the world in the last 12 months and competed. It is not a case of a new message. It is trying to add to what is already here — the momentum is here. 'The England rugby team and the 2015 World Cup at home are a hell of a challenge.'
