Paris - Argentina captain Agustin Creevy has been declared fit for Saturday's Test against France in Paris along with scrum-half Tomas Cubelli.

Coach Daniel Hourcade opted for a more classic lineup than the side that beat Italy 20-18 last Friday with just one change from the starting 15 that lost 41-31 to Scotland this month.

Cubelli was preferred to Martin Landajo with wing Juan Imhoff and centre Marcelo Bosch, who missed the Italy game, reclaiming their place in the squad.

Bosch will link up with Juan Martin Hernandez, who played in the fly-half position of Nicolas Sanchez in Genoa on Friday.

Hourcade has stuck with the same forwards as against Italy with the exception of Creevy, who had a calf injury and was replaced last week by Matias Cortese.

Lyon prop Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro was preferred over Castres' Ramiro Herrera, while number eight Juan Manuel Leguizamon is out having not completely recovered for his calf strain.
