Argentina v Scotland - Live

Last updated: 20th June 2014  


80 Scotland can't regather the restart and Argentina are on the attack! Amorosino up to the 22... Sanchez is back in the pocket but his drop goal is wide! Scotland win! Heck of a finish here in Cordoba as Vern Cotter's winning start continues with Scotland. A dramatic finish as Scotland stay unbeaten in June.

Penalty79 PENALTY, SCOTLAND, WEIR! 19-21: Thundering maul from Scotland and they get the penalty! Can Weir make amends... yes he can! Late drama in Cordoba as Scotland go into the lead with a minute to go.

77 Scotland under pressure but do enough to win the penalty at the ruck - Weir clearing up to 40 metres out. Scotland need three points.

TRY75 TRY, SCOTLAND, PRYGOS! 19-18: Given! Good support line from Prygos after Seymour races away down the wing and Scotland are back within a point. Weir can't land the conversion.

73 Have Scotland scored a try now?! Seymour releases Prygos but the TMO is checking an incident in the build-up.

Penalty70 PENALTY, SCOTLAND, WEIR! 19-13: Nice hit from the young Scottish fly-half. Scotland back within six.

69 Pumas scrum near halfway completely splintered and Scotland have the penalty, Weir lining up a long-range strike.

66 Sanchez the man down for treatment and he groggily departs, not what Argentina want to see. The signal of a penalty for their side though is nothing new as again Scotland fall short at the breakdown, their attack coming to nothing.

65 Maul secured by Scotland before they look wide, but there's no advantage after Argentina infringe. Weir goes back into the corner. Play stopped for an injury.

63 Argentinian attack ends with a knock on and from the resulting scrum Scotland work their way into the 22 and win a penalty. Weir kicks into the corner.

TRY60 TRY, ARGENTINA, TUCULET! 19-10: Pumas lineout just over halfway. Working the ball left and Tuculet glides through Cowan's tackle and has the speed and power to beat Hogg and score! Very important try that. Sanchez can't convert.

Penalty57 PENALTY, ARGENTINA, SANCHEZ! 14-10: Argentina though hit back immediately, a brilliant strike from the number ten from halfway going over to restore the four-point advantage.

Penalty55 PENALTY, SCOTLAND, WEIR! 11-10: Weir lands the resulting penalty and Scotland are back within a point.

55 Orlando warned for a tip tackle but nothing further.

54 Time off as the referee asks the TMO to check for foul play.

51 Couple of reset scrums for Scotland but finally they get away, Weir directing his backs as Horne carries. Maitland on the ball out wide as Scotland build, over ten phases. Prygos adding some snap at the base as we reach phase 20, Scotland winning the penalty. But they want more...

48 Scotland this time winning the penalty within their own half and Weir fires them back into the attack. Lineout taken by Low as Scotland maul their way forward. Pyrgos now on for Scotland but once again, it's a Pumas penalty at the breakdown. Complete dominance in that area.

47 Argentina once again are careless as they lose the ball in contact under their own posts, but Scotland can't make it work to their benefit as Weir knocks on in the tackle and then Scotland stray offside.

45 Big chance for Scotland now as they turnover the Pumas five metres from their line. Pass though out wide is a howler, Scotland butchering the chance as it flies into touch. Argentina breathe again.

Penalty43 PENALTY, ARGENTINA, SANCHEZ! 11-7: Important strike from the fly-half as the hosts open up a narrow lead.

42 Lineout success for Scotland near halfway, but once against Argentina are there to win the battle of the breakdown. Penalty just inside the Scottish half.

40 Sanchez starts the second half - can Argentina pick up their first Test win of 2014?


40 Argentina infringe at the ruck and Scotland have a chance to restore their lead with a long-range penalty from out on the right. He can't bring it around, the ball falling to the right and so the Pumas hold a very slender lead going into the break. Two evenly matched sides making plenty of errors - who can make the breakthrough?

37 Good breakdown defence from Cross wins Scotland a crucial penalty to end Argentina's attack. Scottish player down for treatment.

34 Scrum against the head from Scotland but Hart's kick flies out into touch on the full. Sanchez tries to land another drop goal, but that one is too ambitious and wide of the mark.

32 Scotland do clear but it's only a temporary reprieve as Sanchez finds touch again outside the 22. Ford to Low and Hart kicks, taken by Sanchez. Loose pass nearly picked off by Seymour, but he knocks on.

30 Amorosino finds touch inside the Scottish half. Stolen ball for the Pumas and another well directed kick puts Scotland back to their 22. Argentina turning the screw.

Drop Goal28 DROP GOAL, ARGENTINA, SANCHEZ! 8-7: Very well worked phase from France and Sanchez drops back into the pocket to land a super strike. Pumas ahead for the first time.

27 Argentinian defence on top at the moment as another Scottish surge ends with a penalty at the breakdown. Pumas in control and Sanchez finds touch.

26 No joy for Scotland, knocking on to concede the scrum. Argentina still under pressure.

24 Horrible lineout from the Pumas and it's knocked on into Scottish hands. Kick through through is easily fielded by Montero and Argentina clear. Scotland coming back, up to the 22.

22 De Luca crashing the ball up, followed by Hart. Penalty Pumas! Forcing Scotland to hold on and now Argentina can clear.

21 Argentina do win the lineout on their line but also knock on. Scotland in a promising position and their scrum has dominated so far.

19 Weir's sharp kick finds touch deep in the Pumas 22. The hosts go to the front but the ball is loose and turned over by Scotland - however the referee says they knocked on. Pumas scrum.

17 Smart move from the Pumas puts Amorosino into space from the back off the scrum, but his chip bounces easily for Scotland. Weir drops out.

16 Scottish lineout on halfway and the ball is lost forward after Seymour runs into the tackle. Scrum to the hosts.

TRY14 TRY, ARGENTINA, DESIO! 7-5: Yes they can! Sanchez works the ball wide and Desio is there to finish in the corner. Thrilling build up by Iglesias originally and the Pumas are playing with plenty of flair. Sanchez can't convert.

12 Scotland so close again! Seymour again finds space and his chip over the top just doesn't bounce into his hands with the line ahead of him. Argentina recover and work their own chip over the top from Iglesias, attacking into the Scottish half. Despite the overlap the kick, but retain possession. Can the Pumas score?

9 Knocked on by Scotland at the end of a driving maul, handing Argentina valuable field position. Amorosino with an arcing run up to the 22. Penalty though to Scotland, Alemanno in at the side of the ruck.

TRY7 TRY, SCOTLAND, HOGG! 7-0 Grubber from Hogg dribbles it's way into touch, but crucially off a Pumas hand. Ford finds Gilchrist and Scotland attack up to the 22. Worked wide and that's a try for Hogg! Seymour's excellent run down the touchline drawing the last man for the try. Scotland into the lead. Hogg's sixth try in 23 Tests. Weir converts.

4 Lengthy attack from Argentina comes to nothing as Scotland turn over the ball, but a big tackle from the Pumas leads to a knock on. Scottish scrum. Weir looking wide for Hogg. Scotland in the Argentina half.

3 Lineout taken by the skipper Gilchrist but then Scotland lose possession and concede a penalty. Argentina clear.

2 Scotland knock on in attack, Pumas with the scrum by the left touchline. Penalty Scotland, dropping of the bind there giving Weir the chance to pump this into the corner.

We're off! Weir kicks long as Argentina carry within their 22 before Cubelli clears.

Two rousing anthems completed under blue and sunny skies in Cardoba as we prepare to get started.

Manuel Carizza, Rodrigo Baez, Tomas de la Vega, Nicolas Sanchez, Manuel Montero y Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino all remain from the Argentina team that faced Ireland last weekend. Tomas Cubelli is captain for the first time.

Edinburgh second-row Grant Gilchrist captains a much-changed Scotland for the first time against Argentina in Cardoba on Friday. Four players remain from the team that started and secured a second win of head coach Vern Cotter's international career against Canada last week. One of the quartet, the 23-year-old Gilchrist, will captain the side. Gilchrist is joined by Stuart Hogg, Sean Maitland and Peter Horne from the starting XV against Canada last week.

Hello and welcome to our coverage of Scotland's third Test of the June international window. Vern Cotter's side are in for their stiffest examination so far this month against a promising Pumas side. Kick-off is approaching, don't go away!
