The Saturday, at 8:50 am live on ESPN, The Pumas will visit Welsh on Cardiff in the Principality Stadium. To do this, the coach Mario Ledesma will make six modifications with respect to the team that beat Romania the last saturday in Bucharest by 24-17.
The Argentine Head Coach decided to make four changes in the forwards and two in the backs to face the Six Nations champion.
In the first row Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro and Francisco Gómez Kodela will replace Francisco Gigena and Enrique Piereto (who suffered a knee sprain).
In the second row, Guido Petti will start replacing Tomás Lavanini and will accompany Marcos Kremer who maintains his position. Finally on the side of the forwards, Facundo Isa enters through Francisco Gorrissen in the third row.
The only two changes the backs will have will be to the back of the court. Juan Cruz Mallía replaces Juan Imhoff and will occupy the position of fullback passing Santiago Cordero as wing. And Santiago Carreras will replace Bautista Delguy who could not train alongside the group due to muscle fatigue in the right hamstring.
On the substitute bench, Tomás Lavanini and Matías Alemanno will wait for an opportunity to enter together with the first lines Facundo Gigena, Facundo Bosch and Santiago Medrano. For the backs, Gonzalo Bertranou will be the scrum half relay, Domingo Miotti the starter and Santiago Chocobares the number 23.
