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 of November 2014, they have met 18 times, but only 15 times has been recognised by both sides as Tests. Scotland went 2–1 in the three pre-1990 matches, and crushed Argentina 49–3 in their first mutually recognised Test in 1990. The Pumas then went on a seven-match winning streak, but Scotland have been more successful in recent times, winning five of their most recent seven encounters.
Their most recent match took place in November 2014 and was won 41-31 by Scotland.
