It’s a big game for…

Huw Jones: In Scotland’s one-point defeat to Australia last Saturday, there was one breakout star amongst the home side’s XV – outside-centre Huw Jones. The 22-year-old, who plays for Stormers in South Africa, scored two tries against the Wallabies to ensure that Scotland did not suffer in the absence of Mark Bennett and Duncan Taylor.

Weird stat…

In the 15 matches that Scotland and Argentina have played against each other, the home side have scored 309 points while the Pumas have amassed 268. However, Scotland have only six victories to show for their efforts and Argentina have won the other nine matches.

Remember when…

Scotland fell agonisingly short of victory against the Pumas after Dan Parks missed a late drop goal to keep the scores at 13-12 in the 2011 Rugby World Cup. That was only time in the last 5 fixtures between the teams that Argentina have won.

Player to watch…

Juan Martin Hernandez: The veteran centre, formerly of French side Toulon, has amassed almost 70 caps for his national side since his debut in 2003 and scored a try on Saturday as Argentina narrowly lost out to Wales in Cardiff.
