Ledesma named an unchanged run-on side to the one that crashed to a second-string New Zealand last week, with Santiago Carreras retained at flyhalf with first-choice No.10 Nicolas Sanchez still out injured.

There are a few changes on the bench.

Rodrigo Martinez takes over the No.17 jersey from Carlos Muzzio, while Joaquin Oviedo also gets a place on the bench with Tomas Lezana dropping out of the matchday squad.

The other change to the bench sees Mateo Carreras come in for Matias Moroni.
