Argentina have opted to make two changes ahead of their Test with the All Blacks in Wellington this weekend.
The Pumas drew 16-16 with South Africa in their last game but Santiago Phelan has decided to shuffle his back for the task ahead. Star playmaker Juan Martin Hernandez comes into the team after recovering from injury and replaces Nicolas Sanchez.
Phelan has also called on ex London Irish and Stade Francais back-row Juan Manuel Leguizamon who replaces Alvaro Galindo.
And New Zealand will face an Argentina team complete with former coach Graham Henry in their coaching box. Henry guided the Kiwis to glory in the 2011 World Cup but half-back Piri Weepu insists that it will not be a distraction.
"To be honest we haven't really spoken much about it," Weepu said. "We're just trying to focus on what they've got to offer and work on that and make sure we come to the table with good preparation and ready to go on Saturday."
Martin Rodriguez; Gonzalo Camacho, Marcelo Bosch, Santiago Fernandez, Horacio Agulla; Juan Martin Hernandez, Nicolas Vergallo; Rodrigo Roncero, Eusebio Guinazu, Juan Figallo, Manuel Carizza, Patricio Albacete, Julio Farias Cabello, Juan Manuel Leguizamon, Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe (captain)
Replacements: Agustin Creevy, Marcos Ayerza, Juan Pablo Orlandi, Leonardo Senatore, Thomas Leonardi, Martin Landajo, Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino
