Argentina have made five changes to their side ahead of Saturday's game against Australia in Perth.
The Pumas battled valiantly against New Zealand last weekend but eventually fell to a 28-13 defeat. Both Argentina and Australia are currently without a win in the 2013 Rugby Championship and they will be going all out to change that on Saturday.
And the Pumas have shuffled their pack ahead of the match with Worcester's Agustin Creevy starting at hooker in place of Bath's Eusebio Guinazu. The rest of the pack stays the same, with Juan Fernandez Martin Lobbe retaining the captaincy, with the other four changes occurring in the backs.
Martin Landajo is relegated to the bench and is replaced at scrum-half by Tomas Cubelli. On the flank, Juan Imhoff starts in place of the injured Gonzalo Camacho, with the Leicester Tigers winger reportedly suffering a dislocated shoulder in Saturday's game. And in the centres, Felipe Contepomi and Gonzalo Tiesi come in for Santiago Fernandez and Marcelo Bosch.
Juan Martin Hernandez, Horacio Agulla, Gonzalo Tiesi, Felipe Contepomi, Juan Imhoff, Nicolas Sanchez, Thomas Cubelli; Marcos Ayerza, Agustín Creevy, Juan Figallo, Manuel Carizza, Julio Farias Cabello, Juan Martín Fernández Lobbe, Pablo Matera, Juan Manuel Leguizamón
Replacements: Eusebio Guiñaz, Nahuel Lobo, Juan Pablo Orlandi, Mariano Galarza, Benjamín Macome, Martín Landajo, Santiago Fernández, Lucas González Amorosino
