Mario Ledesma has replaced Daniel Hourcade as Argentina head coach ahead of the Rugby Championship.
Hourcade resigned last month after a poor June Test series that saw the Pumas lose two Tests to Wales and one to Scotland at home.
‘This is a huge challenge, but one I will embrace,’ said Ledesma, the former Argentina hooker who took the Jaguares to the Super Rugby quarter-finals this year.
The Pumas will begin their Rugby Championship campaign with a match against the Springboks in Durban on 18 August.
