Scotland Squad fo Argentina Tour

Andy Robinson has named his squad to tour Argentina and called up just one uncapped player in Jim Thompson. The Edinburgh back is the only player in the 27-man squad yet to feature for his country, as Robinson adds five men to the 22 who beat Ireland in March.

Robinson said: (quote) We are really looking forward to playing against Argentina. We have a lot of respect for the way the game is played there and we want to improve upon our success in our most recent game in the Six Nations. As well as our two Test matches in Argentina, we will prepare for those contests with our game at Murrayfield against a Japan Select. (end quote)
