Andy Robinson has urged Scotland not to waste their chances against Argentina again when they face them in their two-Test tour.

The Scotland coach bemoaned his side's profligacy during the 9-6 defeat by the Pumas at Murrayfield last November. An unconvincing 24-5 win over a Japan select on Tuesday provided a warm-up for the first Test in Tucuman on June 12 and Robinson wants his men to step up and make the most of their opportunities.

"In any game of rugby that is what you have to do, and we didn't do it in that last game against Argentina," he said.

"We can look at three or four of the games when that hasn't happened.

"That's one of the areas of the game we need to improve on, our ability to finish.

"It's okay doing all the good build-up work but we have got to get across the line and score tries.

"We always have to have a real collective edge about the way we defend.

"Coming together for the Japan game enabled us to get that.

"There is always a way that we have to improve every facet of our game."
