first cap with Scotland for Ollie Smith against Argentina

Glasgow full-back Ollie Smith will celebrate his first selection with Scotland, on the occasion of the third test of the XV du Thistle against Argentina, Saturday at Santiago Del Estero.

The 21-year-old replaces injured Rory Hutchinson and is among eight improved changes Gregor Townsend will make, following Scotland’s 29-6 win over Pumas last weekend.

The two teams have each won a match during this series, and the Scots are attacking the beautiful private of three backs: Kyle Rowe, Darcy Graham and therefore Hutchinson.

On the right wing Rufus McLean replaces Graham, Sione Tuipulotu replaces Sam Johnson in the center while Ali Price will occupy the position of scrum half and Hamish Watson will be captain for the first time on the occasion of his 51st cap.

Line-up of Scotland vs Argentina on Saturday:

Ollie Smith – Rufus McLean, Mark Bennett, Sione Tuipulotu, Duhan van der Merwe – (o) Blair Kinghorn, (m) Ali Price – Hamish Watson (cap), Matt Fagerson, Rory Darge – Jonny Gray, Scott Cummings – Zander Fagerson, Ewan Ashman, Rory Sutherland

Substitutes: Dave Cherry, Pierre Schoeman, Javan Sebastian, Glen Young, Andy Christie, George Horne, Ross Thompson, Sam Johnson
