Pumas stars sidelined

Argentina centre Felipe Contepomi and fullback Juan Martin Hernandez have been ruled out of the clash against France because of injury.

Hernandez sustained a knock in last week’s game against Wales while Contepomi went down with a serious knee injury. As a result, coach Santiago Phelan has picked Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino at fullback and Marcelo Bosch at No 12.

The only other change sees Horacio Agulla replacing Gonzalo Camacho on the wing.
