Scotland Under-20s head coach Sean Lineen is ready for a physical confrontation against Argentina in their IRB Junior World Championship opener.

Scotland will take on the Pumas at the Stade Pascal Laporte in Nantes on Wednesday, with Wales and Samoa also in the same pool.

And Lineen said: "Training has been good. The boys have been working exceptionally hard and they needed to because tomorrow's game will be a massive challenge.

"Argentina are immensely physical, have a quality set-piece and run hard, which we'll need to be ready for and combat.

"You look at the players and can see that it's a very exciting group so it's up to us to provide an environment for them to flourish and develop.

"But it's not a tour, this is World Cup. It's great to be here for three weeks, and it's great for the players and their development, but we're here to win games. That's what this is about.

"Their work ethic has been outstanding, I couldn't have asked for more from anyone on that front. It is now about our accuracy and decision-making under pressure."

Scotland: 15 Ruaridh Young, 14 Jamie Farndale, 13 Chris Auld, 12 Mark Bennett, 11 Rory Hughes, 10 Tommy Allan, 9 Scott Steele, 1 Jamie Bhatti, 2 Russell Anderson, 3 D'Arcy Rae, 4 Adam Sinclair, 5 Jonny Gray (capt), 6 Tommy Spinks, 7 Will Bordill, 8 Adam Ashe.
Replacements: 16 Reyner Kennedy, 17 Robby Wilson, 18 Phil Cringle, 19 Ruaridh Leishman, 20 Eoghan Masterson, 21 Ali Price, 22 Robbie Fergusson, 23 Damien Hoyland
