Scotland started the match in ninth spot, one place behind the Argentines, and were expected to swap places with the Pumas after beating them. But Australia’s 25-23 win in Paris means the Scots go above France into seventh.
Scotland finish off their Autumn Series against Georgia in Kilmarnock on Saturday and are assessing a number of players.
A Scotland team spokesman said: “Huw Jones sustained a foot injury in the act of creating Sean Maitland’s try. The midfielder had a scan after the game and will be re-assessed early in the week.
“Three players sustained dead legs in the match – hooker Fraser Brown, lock Grant Gilchrist and replacement centre Pete Horne – all of whom will require medical management this week.
“Several other players are showing the signs of a physical contest and will require ongoing care and management as the week progresses.”
