Scotlands summer tour has certainly been one of mixed emotions up until now.

The first leg of the Scotland Tour to North America has brought hard fought victories against the US Eagles and the Canadian Canucks, results that have lifted the Scots to eighth position in the IRB's world rankings.

However, on the downside, the Scots have been beset by injuries during the first part of their tour. Jim Hamilton, Duncan Taylor, Alasdair Strokosch, Kelly Brown, Ruaridh Jackson and Johnnie Beattie have all suffered injuries in North America that have ended their participation in the trip   

As the Scots prepare for the second leg of their tour which begins with a Test against Argentina in Estadio Mario Alberto Cordoba on Friday, and concludes with a one of Test against the Springboks in Port Elizabeth on 28th June, they will be grateful that the selectors made the decision to pick a largely different squad for the last two matches of the tour.

The Scotland is further weakened for the match against an Argentina side that has been beaten twice in the past fortnight by Ireland, with the absence of back row David Denton. The 24 year old back row forward was set to win his 23rd cap on Friday, but he has failed to fully recover from a head injury he suffered on the final day of the RaboDirect PRO12 season.
