Pumas get double boost

Argentina will have two key players back in flyhalf Juan Martin Hernandez and flank Juan Manuel Leguizamon for the Test against the All Blacks in Wellington on Saturday.

Hernandez missed out on the 16-16 draw against the Springboks in Mendoza because of a hamstring injury, while Leguizamon will make his first Rugby Championship appearance after recovering from a stomach injury. The players boast 72 caps between them.

Their returns see No 10 Nicholas Sanchez and flank Alvaro Galindo fall out of the starting line-up.

Head coach Santiago Phelan will announce his bench later in the week.

Argentina – 15 Martin Rodriguez, 14 Gonzalo Camacho, 13 Marcelo Bosch, 12 Santiago Fernandez, 11 Horacio Agulla, 10 Juan Martin Hernandez, 9 Nicolas Vergallo, 8 Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe, 7 Juan Manuel Leguizamon, 6 Julio Farias Cabello, 5 Patricio Albacete, 4 Manuel Carizza, 3 Juan Figallo, 2 Eusebio Guinazu, 1 Rodrigo Roncero.
