Gregor Townsend’s Scots have arguably the best chance to pick up a series victory this summer, facing an Argentina side that has struggled to threaten at the top level, by and large, for some time now.
Townsend sprung a surprise by leaving out skipper Stuart Hogg and playmaker Finn Russell, however, but did so most likely with the hope of building much-needed depth to his squad 15 months out from the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France.
