Scotland Player Ratings Vs Argentina

Let’s look at Scotland Player Ratings after a hard day against Argentina.

Scotland had been doing well against Argentina lately, but the Pumas squeezed the tourists out of the first Test in Jujuy.

In the first half, Scotland couldn’t get a hold of the ball, making it look like an attack against a defense. After halftime, Scotland got back on track, but the tourists lost their edge and lost the game.

Set pieces failed badly, which will worry Gregor Townsend, and there are still more questions than answers about how Scotland can build depth in key areas.

Here is how the Scotland players did on a hard day: Scotland Player Ratings

15. Rory Hutchinson – 5: When he returned to the national team and made his first start at fullback, he handled a high ball well to calm his nerves. Bennett scored, and it was a nice touch to give Kinghorn room. Bennett then took his third Test try well.

14. Darcy Graham – 5: Scotland has no real chances with the ball in hand, but chasing kicks is important. Just before halftime, he kicked the ball away, giving Argentina a chance to attack on the counter. Also gave up a penalty early on for being careless.

13. Mark Bennett – 5: The first half was very quiet, and a big hit was the only thing that stood out. But after halftime, the man from Edinburgh got hold of the ball and scored on his first Test start since 2016. When he got a chance, he was strong in contact.

12. Sam Johnson – 6: Scotland had very few chances to attack, so it took a couple of big carries through traffic to get them to the front foot.

11. Duhan van der Merwe – 6: He couldn’t get into the game offensively, but he did make two important tackles. After a stray lineout, they almost scored.

10. Blair Kinghorn – 4: A real mixed bag, with some good touches for Scotland’s tries, but at Test level, he plays too much. Still getting used to being a fly-half at the top level, Scotland missed Finn Russell and even Adam Hastings’s control.

9. Ali Price – 5: Scotland was missing Russell and Hogg, so they had a chance to step up, but they made some strange decisions given how few chances they had to attack. Kicked away a loose ball and tapped a penalty that could be kicked.

1. Pierre Schoeman – 6: Early on, he had trouble at the scrum, but he showed off his huge engine with a great kick chase and tackle that earned three points for Scotland.

2. George Turner – 5 At the lineout, there were some really expensive mistakes, including one right at the start of the second half. The only other important thing he did in the first 40 minutes was a big run through the middle of the field.

3. Zander Fagerson – 5:

Except for one early call, they won the scrum. Crowded into a ruck that Scotland lost, which gave de la Fuente a chance to score.

4. Grant Gilchrist – 5: The captain was as expected good in the tight, and he works hard all the time, but a couple of bad lineouts will make him sad.

5. Jonny Gray – 4: Before Hutchinson scored, he made a good carry that drew in the home team’s defenders. Other than that, he was very quiet.

6. Magnus Bradbury – 6: Early on, when Argentina was close to the Scottish line, Matera made a few big tackles.

7. Luke Crosbie – 5: Last weekend, he was given a chance to lead Scotland “A” because Watson was hurt and Darge had just come back from injury. Early on, he was very good with the ball, but Mallia stole it from him, which led to Carreras’s try.

8. Matt Fagerson – 6: Scotland’s breakaway trio worked hard and won a couple of jackal penalties, but the Pumas’ loose forwards were too strong for them.

Substitutions

16. Ewan Ashman – 4

He needs to do more if he wants to take Turner’s place and move ahead of Brown and McInally.

Rory Sutherland – 3

Back after missing the end of the Six Nations, but had trouble at the scrum and didn’t make any difference with the ball.

18. Javan Sebastian – 3

The Scarlets player didn’t have the same effect as he did last week against Chile. The only important thing they did was pile into a maul on the side.

19. Sam Skinner – 4

Gray was replaced in the last 15 minutes of the game, but by then it was too late to win.

Rory Darge – 5

The Glasgow player was just coming back from an injury, so he didn’t have the same impact as during the Six Nations, but he fought hard.

21. Ben White – 4

Sharp at the breakdown, but another player who gave away a soft penalty.

22. Ross Thompson – n.d.

Unused

23. Sione Tuipulotu – N/A

On for Johnson in the last 10 minutes of the game. As the game went on, there was no time to make a difference.
