Argentina coach Daniel Hourcade has, as expected, announced a weakened XV that will face Ireland in Resistencia.
The Pumas named two separate squads for the June internationals and Rugby Championship, with the latter seeing their star players included.
Because of this there is a lack of Juan Martin Hernandez, Horacio Agulla, Marcelo Bosch, AgustÃn Creevy, Juan Imhoff, Juan Manuel LeguizamÃ³n, Juan MartÃn FernÃ¡ndez Lobbe, Pablo Matera and the like involved this month.
However, MartÃn Landajo and NicolÃ¡s SÃ¡nchez will form a strong half-back combination for the opening Test against while Manuel Carizza wears number four and Joaquin Tuculet is at full-back.
Argentina: 15 Joaquin Tuculet, 14 Santiago Cordero, 13 JerÃ³nimo De la Fuente, 12 Gabriel Ascarate, 11 Manuel Montero, 10 NicolÃ¡s SÃ¡nchez, 9 MartÃn Landajo, 8 Benjamin Macome, 7 TomÃ¡s De la Vega, 6 Rodrigo Baez, 5 Tomas Lavanini, 4 Manuel Carizza, 3 Ramiro Herrera, 2 MatÃas Cortese, 1 Lucas Noguera Paz.
Replacements: 16 Julian Montoya, 17 Bruno Postiglioni, 18 Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, 19 MatÃas Alemanno, 20 Javier Ortega Desio, 21 TomÃ¡s Cubelli, 22 Santiago GonzÃ¡lez Iglesias, 23 Lucas GonzÃ¡lez Amorosino.
