Argentina have confirmed their Test match schedule for next year but have yet to announce where they will stage their six home games over the course of 2012.
However, the Argentine Rugby Union (UAR) has revealed that Rosario and Mendoza are potential venues for their upcoming fixtures after both cities met their requirements for hosting internationals.
The Pumas kick off their season with a home game against Italy on June 9 before staging a two-Test series against France.
Argentina will then compete in the inaugural Rugby Championship from August right through until October before embarking on a European tour in November which will see them take on Wales, France and Ireland.
June 9: Argentina v Italy
