Argentina makes four changes for All Blacks


Argentina has made four changes to the team that beat the Springboks a week ago in Argentina for their test against the All Blacks this weekend.

Changes include Garcia Botta entering the front row to replace Juan Figallo who has returned to his club Saracens, while Tomas Lezana will start on the flank with Pablo Matera dropping to the bench.

Scrumhalf Martin Landajo gets his first start since playing Scotland in June with Tomas Cubelli in the reserves, while Jeronimo de la Fuenta replaces Bautista Ezcurra in the centres.

There are also three new faces among the replacements in Juan Pablo Zeiss, Julian Montoya and Gaston Cortes.
