Argentina ring the changes
June 20, 2012
Pumas coach Santiago Phelan has opted to make seven changes to the side that dispatched France last weekend.
Manuel Montero's try helped Argentina beat Les Bleus last weekend and he keeps his spot in the XV but elsewhere there are wholesale changes. Facundo Barrea, Agustin Gosio, Benjamin Urdapilleta and Tomas Cubelli all come into the back division. In the forwards, Andres Bordoy, Francisco Gomez Kodela and Leonardo Senatore are also included.
Argentina: Joaquin Tuculet, Facundo Barrea, Agustin Gosio, Felipe Contepomi (capt), Manuel Montero, Benjamin Urdapilleta, Tomas Cubelli, Eusebio Guinazu, Andres Bordoy, Francisco Gomez Kodela, Julio Farias Cabello, Esteban Lozada, Tomas De la Vega, Tomas Leonardi, Leonardo Senatore
Replacements: Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, Bruno Postiglioni, Santiago Guzman, Benjamin Macome, Rodrigo Baez, Martin Landajo, Gabriel Ascarate
