Argentina coach Mario Ledesma has made five changes to his side ahead of their clash with Australia in Brisbane on Saturday.
Captain Agustín Creevy has not travelled to Australia due to a muscle problem. He will be replaced at hooker by Julian Montoya, while Pablo Matera will assume the captaincy.
Ledesma has opted for two new loose forwards in Facundo Isa at No 8 and Tomas Lezana at flank.
Santiago Cordero will start on the wing with Matias Moroni moving to outside centre in place of Matias Orlando. Joaquin Tuculet is preferred at fullback over Emiliano Boffelli.
