There was late heartbreak for Scotland as they lost 22-31 to the All Blacks in Edinburgh. This weekend comes a tricky opponent in Argentina, who this November stunned England at Twickenham Stadium and lost to Wales at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.

Pushing the All Blacks extremely close would have been a great confidence boost to Gregor Townsend’s side and the reintroduction of Finn Russell also lifted the team. Scotland have already played three games this autumn, losing to Australia and New Zealand, their sole success coming when Fiji came to town.

Michael Cheika’s Argentina failed to build on their win over England when losing to Wales a weekend ago. More than anything, the South Americans lacked that clinical edge they had displayed a week prior and have recalled veteran fly-half Nicolas Sanchez to their squad.

Quite how the 34-year-old will embed back into the side is unknown, but with over a decade’s experience as an international, it is likely the playmaker will have a positive impact on the group as they continue to build.

It will definitely be a competitive encounter between these two teams. Argentina’s performances this calendar year have been indicative of a side that are a threat to anyone they play, their wins over the All Blacks and England a sign of this, and are likely to be favourites on Saturday against Scotland.
