Scotland are monitoring the fitness of Simon Danielli, Dan Parks and Scott McLeod ahead of the second Test against Argentina in Buenos Aires on June 14.

"It was tough match, very physical."
Andy Robinson Quotes of the week

The trio played the entire 80 minutes of the 21-15 first-Test defeat in Rosario last Saturday.

Wing Danielli and fly-half Parks suffered knee and ankle injuries, respectively, while lock McLeod picked up a knock to his thigh.

All three have been ordered to rest until at least Tuesday by team doctor James Robson.

Despite the result, Scotland coaches Andy Robinson and Sean Lineen took some positives from the first Test.

"It was tough match, very physical," said forwards coach Robinson.

"We had our momentum but couldn't take it. Argentina are very strong at the contact."

Backs coach Lineen added: "The very few opportunities that we could create Argentina were very smart to break us down, giving the penalty chances."

Lineen also believed Irish referee Alan Lewis was too lenient in dealing with Argentinian misdemeanours.

"They were very smart," he added. "They were never picked up then and it is useless to complain now."
