Sam Johnson went over for a try
Scotland bounced back from last week's defeat as got the better of Argentina in Salta, winning the second Test 29-6 on Saturday.

Tries from Hamish Watson, Mark Bennett, Matt Fagerson and Sam Johnson saw Gregor Townsend's men to a confidence boosting victory.

Blair Kinghorn and Ross Thompson contributed off the kicking tee while for Argentina their points arrived via two penalties from Emiliano Boffelli.

Scotland had trailed 6-3 before Watson gave them a narrow advantage three minutes before the break.

But Townsend's side took control in the third quarter of the match, scoring 21 unanswered points in the second half to tie the series at 1-1.

The series will now be decided in next Saturday's third game in Santiago del Estero.
