Argentina have made four changes ahead of their match with Ireland in the Aviva Stadium on Saturday.
Juan Martin Hernandez returns at fullback as the Pumas look to bounce back after their loss to France last weekend. The Racing Metro back replaces Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino and is joined in the backs by Exeter's Gonzalo Camacho and Santiago Fernandez. Camacho replaces the injured Horacio Agulla while Fernandez steps in for Gonzalo Tiesi with Marcelo Bosch shifting to outside centre.
And in the pack, Maximiliano Bustos is set to make his debut at tight-head and replaces Juan Figallo. Argentina will hope to come away with a win from Dublin on Saturday and in the process secure their spot in the top eight of the IRB rankings ahead of December's 2015 World Cup draw.
Argentina: Juan Martin Hernandez, Gonzalo Camacho, Marcelo Bosch, Santiago Fernandez, Juan Imhoff, Nicolas Sanchez, Martin Landajo; Marcos Ayerza, Eusebio Guinazu, Maximiliano Bustos, Manuel Carizza, Julio Farias Cabello, Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe, Juan Manuel Leguizamon, Leonardo Senatore
Replacements: Agustin Creevy, Nahuel Lobo, Francisco Gomez Kodela, Tomas Vallejos, Tomas Leonardi, Nicolas Vergallo, Gonzalo Tiesi, Manuel Montero
