Andy Robinson has blamed "one slip of concentration" for Scotland's late loss to Argentina.

Scotland coach Andy Robinson believes that his side have only themselves to blame for their World Cup defeat to Argentina earlier today.

The Scots held a 12-6 advantage with just ten minutes remaining, but a converted try from Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino handed a 13-12 victory to the Argentinians in Wellington.

"We had complete control of the game, but one slip of concentration cost us," the coach said after the match.

"First, to lose the restart, then secondly a poor defensive lapse."

The loss means Scotland must beat Pool B leader England next weekend to have any chance of qualification to the quarter-finals.
