Argentina centre Marcelo Bosch is full of enthusiasm ahead of his team’s encounter with Scotland this weekend at Murrayfield.

Los Pumas made real strides in the Rugby Championship, picking up a first win over the Wallabies, with new coach Daniel Hourcade making an impact.

Bosch and his team-mates will take on Scotland, Italy and France over the next few weeks as they look to build on their Rugby Championship success.

“We got back together last night and today we’re in the gym in the morning. Then we have a meeting to analyse what happened in the Rugby Championship, what we did well and where we can improve. I’m enthusiastic to start training with Scotland in mind, with the game coming up fast,” said Bosch.

Bosch is also aware that Scotland have been in camp for much longer than Argentina, thanks to playing with Duncan Taylor and Jim Hamilton at Saracens.

The 30-year-old however is solely focused on his own side’s preparation.

“At Saracens I play with three Scots and they’ve been training together since last week, together for 14 days, with a view on the game,” added Bosch.

“We know they have a new coach, who is very good, and that he will surely fire them up.

“For now though we’re thinking about ourselves, starting with training and analysis, and getting a strategy ready for Saturday.

“We have a few injuries and some players coming in to add to the group, but we’re confident and very excited with the tour and that our first game is important. We’re just focused and excited to get to work.”
