Argentina have made two changes to the starting team for the return Castle Lager Rugby Championship match against South Africa in Salta on Saturday.
Centre Juan Martin Hernandez, a late withdrawal from the side defeated 13-6 in Pretoria last weekend, returns at inside centre in place of Santiago Gonzalez Iglesias and Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino comes in on the right wing for Horacio Agulla.

Worcester Warriors hooker Agustin Creevy skippers the Pumas and there are two ex-captains, Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe and Juan Manuel Leguizamon, in the back row.

Coach Daniel Hourcade has also made two alterations to the eight-man replacements list as Argentina seek a first Championship victory after a draw and 12 defeats.

Prop Bruno Postiglioni gets the nod ahead of Lucas Noguera Paz and Agulla takes the place of Amorosino.

The team is:

15 Joaquin Tuculet, 14 Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino, 13 Marcelo Bosch, 12 Juan Martin Hernandez, 11 Manuel Montero, 10 Nicolas Sanchez, 9 Martin Landajo; 8 Juan Manuel Leguizamon, 7 Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe, 6 Paul Matera, 5 Thomas Lavanini, 4 Mariano Galarza, 3-Ramiro Herrera 2 Agustin Creevy (captain), 1 Marcos Ayerza.
