Argentinian flanker Juan Manuel Leguizamon says Tomas Cubelli hasn’t been dishing any Australian secrets to the Pumas.

However, Leguizamon says they’re confident they’ve done their homework on the Wallabies.

Leguizamon said Cubelli hadn’t given him any special insights but they had pored over analysis footage in the lead-up to the match.

"To be honest, no, not to me at least. Probably to some of the boys, yes, or to the coaches but he didn't talk to me about anything," he said.

"But we are analysing a lot with the coaches.

"Obviously it will be a good thing if he talked to us about the Brumbies players at least but we're watching a lot of videos and games and the last game Australia-South Africa, so I think we are fine."

Leguizamon is one of the most experienced players in the Pumas outfit, having played 70 Tests for Argentina, including the most recent clash between the Wallabies and Argentina in Perth.

In fact, the number eight scored a try that sent a major scare through the Wallabies camp in the 64th minute, before Australia hung on for a 14-13 win.

The 33-year-old said the team had come a long way in the mean time, especially in their skills, elements that have caught the rugby world’s attention in recent weeks.

"We've been working a lot with our skills coach in the last three years and we feel we are improving a lot," he said.

"That game on Saturday was a good example to see that we'd improved and it was good but not good enough and the All Blacks scored a lot of points against us so it was difficult."
