    • 80+2' Parks is irrepressible as he slots over another three points for the visitors, and Scotland are home and dry!
    • 80' Contepomi plants a sweetly-struck penalty between the posts, and Argentina move to within five points of their visitors.

    • 73' Parks slices a penalty and puts it wide, and Scotland's lead remains at five points for now.
    • 71' Contepomi looks to orchestrate affairs, but it is Scotland who look the more comfortable in open play.
    • 69' Creesy comes on for Ledesma as Argentina make a change, before Parks slots over a penalty to extend Scotland's lead - what a performance this is!
    • 67' Fernandez shows good invention running from deep, and he beats de Luca before being tackled by Morrison.
    • 65' Ford goes down after a clash with Roncero, and it has become a real forwards' battle at the moment.
    • 63' Blair is instrumental already as he dictates the play off the pack to good effect, and releases Morrison.
    • 61' Parks finds touch with an exceptional clearance, and that gives Scotland a very good platform.
    • 59' Blair and Strokosch come on for Scotland, and Andy Robinson shuffles his pack to inject some fresh legs.
    • 57' Scotland are firmly pegged back in their half, but the visitors are defending valiantly as Lawson makes a fine tackle off a scrum.
    • 55' Argentina are desperately pressing, keen to restore their lead in this second half as Scotland are pushed back.

    • 45' Contepomi attempts a hugely ambitious drop goal, but it is charged down as Scotland defend doggedly.
    • 43' The referee takes an age to marshall a scrum, and it's a scrappy start to this second half.

    • 40+4' The half-time whistle goes, and Argentina lead Scotland 13-12 in a dramatic and hugely entertaining first period!
    • 40+3' Parks ends the first half in inspired fashion as he slots over a slick drop goal from the pocket, and that was fine opportunist play!
    • 40+2' Lamont goes over in the corner, but what the winger thinks is a try is not given - it was very tight indeed!
    • 40+1' Leguizamon is shown a yellow card for an infringement with Scotland five yards from the line, and that is a big blow for Argentina!
    • 40' Parks slots over a penalty from the right, and the fly half holds his composure superbly - what a strike before half-time!
    • 39' Contepomi plays a delightful grubba kick down the left, but the move comes to nothing.

    • 24' Borges flies down the wing, but Lamont stands his ground superbly to make a strong tackle. Parks is then presented with a simple penalty, and he makes it count!
    • 22' Scotland build the play patiently from halfway, and the visitors need to find something special to break down their hosts.
    • 20' Evans makes a superb tap-tackle to deny Contempomi as the Argentine races through, and that was last-ditch!
