Scotland Squad For Argentina

The only new face is Jim Thompson, although it’s good to see Alex Grove back challenging for the centre spots. The Scotsman touts rumours that he may be set for Edinburgh which would be interesting as they already have Houston, Cairns and De Luca all competing in the midfield. Cairns has (again) missed out here though. Big Nathan has been granted compassionate leave to return to Oz, with the option of joining up at a later date – we wish him and his family well.

Scotland squad for Argentina tour:
Backs: Blair (Edinburgh), Cusiter (capt, Glasgow), Danielli (Ulster), De Luca (Edinburgh), M Evans (Glasgow), Godman (Edinburgh), Grove (Worcester), S Lamont (Scarlets), R Lawson (Gloucester), Morrison (Glasgow), Parks (Glasgow), Southwell (Stade Francais), Thompson (Edinburgh).
Forwards: Barclay (Glasgow), Beattie (Glasgow), Brown (Glasgow), Dickinson (Gloucester), Ford (Edinburgh), Gray (Glasgow), Hamilton (Edinburgh), Jacobsen (Edinburgh), Kellock (Glasgow), S Lawson (Gloucester), Low (Glasgow), MacDonald (Edinburgh), Murray (Northampton), Strokosch (Gloucester).

  1. Just booked flights to Buenos Aires! Couple of road trips planned and will take in both tests. Two of us heading out, anyone else going? Would be good to preorganise some argie banter!

  2. Will be driving nearly 2000 kms to get to Mar del Plata for the game. Where can I get the tickets for 19th June? am living in Paraguay and we are Scotland fans, all three of us, so want to be there to shout encouragement…. Any suggestions re tickets? about the argie banter…ready and able!!

  3. Apparently tickets aren’t out yet – shouldn’t be too difficult to get hold of though I would imagine. We land in buenos aires thurs 10th and pick up a car to drive over two days to tucaman for first test then will work our way back via waterfalls detour to BA. Prob head down to mar del plata on friday 18th morning to have night out before the game.

    Drop a mail to and we can sort out meeting up for malbec, steaks and more argie banter
