Skipper's delight at England success; RUGBY UNION.
The Pumas were crushed in emphatic style at the Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, with Tom Voyce grabbing two tries and James Simpson-Daniel, Paul Sackey and Andy Gomarsall running in one each.
Pre-match predictions of a finely-balanced encounter between the two development outfits proved wide of the mark as England used the final to atone for their faltering performance against Canada.
The squad arrives back in the UK early tomorrow morning and Sanderson admitted it will be a pleasant journey home as they celebrate winning the Churchill Cup for a second time.
"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," said the Worcester openside.
"There has been a lot of talk saying this tour is for development purposes and that everyone is hoping for a Test place. But the most important thing has always been to win both our matches.
"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. I'm glad it's over."
