Los Pumas recorded their first even win over South Africa at the 19th attempt last weekend in Durban.

Juan Martín Hernández moves from fly-half to inside centre with the return of Nicolás Sanchez at number ten, while Santiago Cordero and Matías Moroni come into the back-line along with Martín Landajo at scrum-half for Tomás Cubelli.

In the forwards Juan Manuel Leguizamón moves to number eight with the return of Juan Martín Fernández Lobbe at openside flanker with Tomás Lezana starting at six.
