Argentina Pumas and Scotland team announcements for their 2011 Rugby World Cup Pool B match at Wellington Regional Stadium. This match has long been touted as the game to decide who will come second in Pool B, even before Argentina went down to England in the opening round. Scotland has won both their matches so far, albeit against lower ranked opposition. Winning this game might even give Scotland an opportunity to challenge England for top of the pool. Scotland has beaten Argentina the last three times they have met.
