Argentina vs Scotland live stream: How to watch summer tour online and on TV today
Scotland will be desperate to bounce back from an opening Test defeat and keep the series alive when they face Argentina at Estadio Padre Ernesto Martearena in Salta on Saturday (kick-off 8.10pm BST).
Los Pumas opened up a 1-0 lead in the three-Test series by winning 26-18 in Jujuy last weekend - leading 18-6 at half-time after scoring two tries in five minutes.
Scotland drew level with two quickfire tries through Mark Bennett and Rory Hutchinson after the break but Gonzalo Bertranou immediately put Michael Cheika’s troops back in front and an Emiliano Boffelli penalty with ten minutes to go put the match out of reach.
gregor Townsend - without Finn Russell and Stuart Hogg due to the pair being rested - has resisted wholesale changes in response but will be boosted by the return of superstar flanker Hamish Watson, while all eyes will continue to be on Blaig Kinghorn at fly half as, although a very fine back three player, the mounting evidence suggests he’s simply not an international No 10, yet maintains the faith of his coach in that role.
