Into the side comes wing Ramiro Moyano, inside centre Juan Martín Hernández and flanker Pablo Matera as they look to claim an away scalp.

Santiago Cordero drops down to the bench, as does Tomás Lezana, but there’s no spot in the matchday 23 for centre Jerónimo de la Fuente.

Argentina beat Japan 54-20 in Tokyo last week while Wales were overrun by Australia, who claimed a 32-8 win at the Principality Stadium.
