Argentina flanker Juan Manuel Leguizamón says the Pumas are ecstatic to be playing their final Rugby Championship game at Twickenham.

Argentina elected to play their final home game in London, not something many teams would choose to do considering the loss of home advantage. But Leguizamon says it is an incredible opportunity.

"We are really happy to be here, we love London and England and it's amazing to be playing at Twickenham again," Leguizamon told ESPN

"We are enjoying it and all very happy to be here. It's a great opportunity to take, and it's all about enjoying this week.

"I would love to have this more regularly, definitely. I love London, having played for London Irish for three years. If we could do this once a year it would be amazing.

"I think it's great for the sport, initiatives like this. Obviously it's amazing to play in Argentina, but it's brilliant for us too to be a part of a move like this."

The Pumas veteran says that Argentina are showing real improvement as a rugby nation.

"It's unbelievable for us how far we've come in the last decade, but at the same time this is where we are and we need to take these chances," he added.

"We are improving and we are doing better but we need to keep moving forward, keep improving.

"We are looking for better results and to make steps forward."
