Pumas reshuffle backline

Gonzalo Camacho will start on the right wing in one of seven changes to Argentina's side for their Test against the Wallabies in Mendoza.

Camacho, who replaces Horacio Agulla in the lineup, makes his international comeback after three shoulder operations kept him sidelined for the past two years.

In a new-look back three, Santiago Cordero shifts to fullback ahead of Joaquin Tuculet with Juan Imhoff coming in on the left wing.

Still among the backs, Matías Moroni and Juan Pablo Socino are the new centre pairing at the expense of Marcelo Bosch and Jeronimo De la Fuente, who drop out of the match-day squad, while Martín Landajo takes over from Tomás Cubelli at scrumhalf. 

Up front, coach Daniel Hourcade has opted to start Javier Ortega Desio at blindside flank and Tomás Lavanini at No 5 lock.

Argentina – 15 Santiago Cordero, 14 Gonzalo Camacho, 13 Matías Moroni, 12 Juan Pablo Socino, 11 Juan Imhoff, 10 Nicolás Sánchez, 9 Martín Landajo, 8 Facundo Isa, 7 Juan Martín Fernández Lobbe, 6 Javier Ortega Desio, 5 Tomás Lavanini, 4 Manuel Carizza, 3 Ramiro Herrera, 2 Agustín Creevy (c), 1 Marcos Ayerza.
Subs: 16 Santiago Iglesias Valdez, 17 Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, 18 Matías Díaz, 19 Matías Alemanno, 20 Leonardo Senatore, 21 Tomás Cubelli, 22 Santiago González Iglesias, 23 Lucas González Amorosino.
