Scotland have named an unchanged squad for their second Test against Argentina in Buenos Aires next Saturday.
Coach Frank Hadden decided to keep faith the same 30-man unit that lost 21-15 in the opening match at Rosario last weekend.
Hadden does have concerns over wing Simon Danielli (knee), fly-half Dan Parks (ankle) and lock Scott MacLeod (thigh), who were unable to participate in today’s recovery session in the gymnasium.
The three will be checked by team doctor James Robson before tomorrow’s training session but both he and Hadden are confident they will be fit for the match at Velez Sarsfield.
Hadden did have the option to call up players from the A squad in North America for the Churchill Cup but opted to stay with his current pool.
Scotland led for most of the second half in the first Test but were beaten late on by a Federico Todeschini penalty and a try from Gonzalo Tiesi.
Flanker Allister Hogg believes the team’s inexperience was evident as they failed to close out the game.
“In the first half we made some good line breaks and forward moves,” said Hogg, who earned his 44th cap in the game.
“When we were 15-10 ahead we were expected to keep doing it and sealing it – that is something to focus thinking on this week, to have the mentality not to lose the advantage.
“It is a young squad. I am not using that as an excuse, but when we had the lead we needed to kick it to the corners and we didn’t.
“I think it is a mentality issue to know what to do at the right time and doing it.
“We have to be a bit more aggressive. We just need to keep the pressure on and especially in defence and playing more rugby.”
Kicking coach Duncan Hodge believes the Scotland side is in good shape and wins should follow once they put a few minor details right.
“We looked at what went right in the game and that was a lot,” he said. “The major aspects of the game were good.
“In international rugby little things can turn a game over – someone making the wrong decision.
“There were a lot of little details just combined that all of sudden took us out of our winning position.
“The home team wanted the victory and the crowds got behind them. Maybe, subconsciously, some of our players felt a bit more pressure.
“During this last 15 minutes we made some errors, physical or mental, and then we were chasing the game which is never what you want when you are playing away from home.”
