SQUAD ANNOUNCEMENT: Argentina head coach Daniel Hourcade confirmed his squad for the upcoming 2017 Rugby Championship.

The 33-player squad will begin training on Monday, July 31 in Buenos Aires.

Among the main standouts in the squad is the return of scrumhalf Tomas Cubelli, who was absent in June due to injury, and the inclusion of three potential debutantes in the tournament: Gonzalo Bertranou, Emiliano Boffelli and Bautista Ezcurra. The latter still has to represent the Pumas.

At the same time, players like Felipe Arregui, Germán Schulz, Ignacio Larrague and Agustín Gómez Dinardo could also participate in the training sessions.

It will be the sixth time Argentina participate in this event, after their debut in 2012. 

As usual, the tournament will have three blocks, which will be separated by a break date. Argentina will face South Africa on August 19 in Port Elizabeth and then on the 26th of that month in Salta.

Afterwards, they will travel to Oceania to face New Zealand (September 9 in New Plymouth) and Australia (September 16 in Canberra). 

They then close they end their campaign back home with matches on Saturday, September 30 in Buenos Aires against New Zealand and on October 7 against the Wallabies in Mendoza.
