Autumn Internationals 2018: Scotland team to face Argentina

Head Coach Gregor Townsend has made nine changes to the starting Scotland line-up for the final match in the 2018 Autumn Test series against Argentina at BT Murrayfield (24 November, kick-off 2.30pm) – live on BT Sport and BBC.

The game is on-course for a sell-out, generating the 11th consecutive Scotland match to be played to a 67,144 capacity at BT Murrayfield.



It was only five months ago the two teams last met as part of the 2018 Summer Tour which saw the visitors to Argentina put in an impressive performance to win by a record score against the Pumas 44-15 in Resistencia.

A contrast to the last-minute win when Argentina last visited Scotland back in the autumn of 2016 when the home side recorded a 19-16 victory with a late Greig Laidlaw penalty.
