Argentina were too strong for Scotland at the World Cup

Scotland have announced plans to play two summer Tests in Argentina.

The Scots will take on the Pumas on 7 June in a provincial centre, with the second Test one week later, most likely in the capital, Buenos Aires.

Scotland, who last toured Argentina in 1994, lost 19-13 to the third-ranked nation in the world in the quarter-finals of the 2007 World Cup.

"Argentina will be a physically demanding tour," said Scotland head coach Frank Hadden.

"We know from our most recent match against them in last October's Rugby World Cup quarter-final we will need to be at our very best."

Argentina were beaten 37-13 by eventual champions South Africa in the semi-finals before defeating hosts France 34-10 in the third-place play-off.
