Argentina Next For Touring Scots
Written by RockSport Radio on June 22, 2018
Argentina’s footballers are in trouble at the World Cup but their rugby team is not to be underestimated as Scotland get ready to face the Pumas in a Summer Test match.
Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend [ pictured ] said: “This is our last Test of the tour and we’re determined to finish on a high.
“With the majority of the squad involved in two Tests, we believe that we’ll be in a much better position in the future, having exposed more players to Test-level rugby, for the season ahead and beyond.
“We’ve learned a lot on this tour about this group of players. Now we have to use that learning to put in a very good performance to beat Argentina on their home patch.
“We’re looking forward to a passionate atmosphere in a football stadium with the crowd very close to the pitch.
“Argentina will bring their passion and physicality where they have traditionally been strong – set piece, ball carrying and in the contact area.
“They also have a host of excellent attacking players, and the last few seasons have seen a much more expansive brand of rugby since joining the Rugby Championship and, more recently, the performances of Jaguares in Super Rugby.”
