SYDNEY Argentina have beefed up their back row with the return of Juan Manuel Leguizamon at blindside flanker in one of four changes for the Rugby Championship test against Australia in Perth on Saturday.
Leguizamon missed the 57-22 loss to championship leaders New Zealand in Hamilton last week with a leg injury but returns to face the Wallabies at Perth Oval.
Coach Daniel Hourcade was forced into making two changes to his side because of injuries to centre Juan Martin Hernandez and lock Guido Petti against the All Blacks.
Santiago Gonzalez Iglesias replaces Hernandez at inside centre alongside Matias Moroni, who moves in from the wing to complete the midfield partnership.
Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino comes in for Moroni out wide, while centre Matias Orlando drops to the bench.
Javier Ortega Desio, who stood in for Leguizamon in the back row last week, moves to lock in place of Petti.
Hourcade also dropped scrumhalf Martin Landajo to the bench to allow Tomas Cubelli, who plays his Super Rugby in Australia with the ACT Brumbies, a first start since last year's World Cup.
