Scotland captain Chris Cusiter flew home from his side's tour of Argentina last night after failing to recover from a knee injury.

The Glasgow Warriors scrum-half Cusiter is still struggling with the injury which forced him to miss the first Test win in Tucuman on Saturday. Cusiter had said that he expected to miss the first game but was hopeful of playing this weekend. However, coach Andy Robinson has decided not to risk him. Robinson said: "Chris trained yesterday with us but he did not come through."

Scotland's victory was the first time their hosts had been defeated in Tucuman and Robinson is desperate to see his side complete a 2-0 series success. "We have the opportunity to get back-to-back wins in Argentina, which not many teams have done," he said.
