Scotland vs Argentina LIVE: Rugby score and latest updates from autumn international as Pumas down to 14 at Murrayfield


Scotland are taking on Argentina at Murrayfield as Gregor Townsend’s men look to bounce back from agonising defeat by the All Blacks with a victory over the Pumas this afternoon.

The Scots came agonisingly close to a first-ever win over New Zealand, only to see the game slip away at the death as they fell to a 31-23 defeat in Edinburgh. It came after a similarly frustrating 16-15 loss to Australia, albeit with a win over Fiji in between the two results.

Argentina edged a thrilling three-match series between these two countries in South America earlier this year as Michael Cheika’s men clinched the decided in Santiago del Estero 34-31, but the Scots will fancy their chances of making amends here on home turf.

TRY! Scotland 19-15 ARGENTINA (Matias Alemanno try, 39 minutes)

A first international try in more than five years for Matias Alemanno!

Argentina don’t bother with the lineout, Pablo Matera taking on the challenge head on with a tap and carry. In pile the rest of the heavy hauliers in support, Scotland struggling to combat their might. Alemanno tucks the ball under his armpit and bashes over.

Emiliano Boffelli converts.

Scotland 19-8 Argentina, 37 minutes

Argentina need a try before half-time, you feel. Karl Dickson’s whistle halts them as they punch around the corner on the five-metre – there has been a knock-on, but not before a no-arms tackle from Scotland.

Scotland 19-8 Argentina, 35 minutes

Argentina hammer against another firmly constructed Scottish defensive wall, but Jonny Gray is penalised for affecting the speed of the ball as his thigh locks inadvertendly around the ball at a ruck. To the right corner, this time.

Scotland 19-8 Argentina, 35 minutes

Scotland just about stall the maul. Argentina keep things tight, both props carrying. A through-kick is the option, again – Santiago Carreras’s poke uses the full depth of the Murrayfield in-goal but a Scottish hand grounds it.

Scotland 19-8 Argentina, 34 minutes

That’s more pleasing for Argentina, bringing down Graham after another menacing weave, and earning a holding o penalty. Into the corner…

Scotland 19-8 Argentina, 32 minutes

Ooh so close to an astonishing, 95-metre score!

Scotland fancy this. Stuart Hogg plays from deep isnide his own 22, drawing two and lasering a pass to Darcy Graham, who had retreated to support his full-back.

Graham evades three defenders and offloads, and there are bodies sprinting through as Chris Harris tries to collect…but the centre can’t hang on!

Scotland 19-8 Argentina, 31 minutes

Michael Cheika does not look particularly happy – Argentina’s discipline has been much improved under the Australian but that was a very, very loose moment from Marcos Kremer.

Argentina win a free kick at the scrum.

TRY! SCOTLAND 19-8 Argentina (Darcy Graham try, 28 minutes)

Finn Russell is producing a scintillating opening half-hour, hands on the ball all the time and Argentina struggling to get to grips with him. This time he makes a clean break, Scottish support rushing through to resource the ruck.

It should be a straightforward, certain score on the right, but Chris Harris fancies a trip meat merchant, threatening to butcher it by hanging on with two unmarked men outside him. Fortunately for the centre, Scotland regenerate possession and Darcy Graham knifes over.

Russell’s conversion is away, but Murrayfield is rather enjoying this.

Scotland 14-8 Argentina, 26 minutes

Off they go again! Russell and Van der Merwe combine once more, fly-half to wing with the chipped cross-kick. Van der Merwe meanders hither and thither before creating his own hole, delivering his particular brand of powerful punishment.
