Argentina v Scotland stock

Anyone's! But Argentina took the spoils

Argentina kept their lengthy unbeaten run against Scotland intact with a 21-15 win in Rosario on Saturday.

Fly-half Federico Todeschini kicked the winning points with a penalty five minutes from the end in a typically robust and tight encounter in Argentina's north, and Gonzalo Tiesi's late try made the game safe for the hosts.

Chris Paterson, starting at full-back, scored all Scotland's points at the Gigante de Arroyito stadium in Rosario to go four clear of Gavin Hastings as his country's all-time record holder.

By playing, he also equalled Scott Murray's record of 87 caps - but his efforts were not enough to subdue a Pumas side playing their first international since finishing third at the World Cup.
