Argentina team to play England

argNew Argentina boss Daniel Hourcade has named his first starting line-up, to take on England this Saturday at Twickenham. There are five changes to the one that finished the Rugby Championship with that disappointing 54-17 loss to the Australians last month.

Juan Manuel Leguizamón captains the side in place of the injured Fernandez Lobbe, while there are eight players who ply their trade in the Aviva Premiership, giving the team a good knowledge of the players they are going to be up against.

One thought on “Argentina team to play England

  1. good looking backline there, could well be some work to shackle, some impressive players in the forwards too. They could be hurting when they look to their bench though
