History of rugby union matches between Argentina and Scotland
The national rugby union teams of Scotland and Argentina (Los Pumas) have played since 1969. However, the status of the countries' first three matches—two in 1969 and one in 1973—is ambiguous, as only Argentina awarded Test caps for those encounters. The first match recognised by both sides as a Test took place in 1990.
As off 20 June 2014, they have met 17 times, but only 14 times has been recognised by both sides as Tests. Scotland went 2–1 in the three pre-1990 matches, and crushed Argentina 46–3 in their first mutually recognised Test in 1990, but the Pumas are 9–3 since then. Most of the matches have been closely fought, with the first 1969 match (won by Argentina), the aforementioned 1990 Test, and the second 2008 Test (won by Scotland) the only ones in the series decided by 10 points or more.
The teams have played each other twice at the Rugby World Cup—in a quarterfinal of the 2007 World Cup at Stade de France, with the Pumas winning 19–13; and in a pool match of the 2011 World Cup in Wellington, won by the Pumas 13–12.
