Cape Town - Argentina have shuffled their backline ahead of Saturday's Rugby Championship Test with the Wallabies at GIO Stadium in Canberra.

Kick-off is at 12:05 SA time. 

Backline stars Joaquin Tuculet and Santiago Cordero are set to miss the clash, with usual wing Emiliano Boffani moving to fullback for the Canberra Test, while Ramiro Moyano will line up on the left wing in the new formation. 

Former Brumbies scrumhalf Tomas Cubelli has been shifted to the bench with Martin Landajo taking the starting spot against Australia. 

The forwards have seen changes too, with Tomas Lezana coming into the starting team at No 8, while Juan Manuel Leguizamon takes the bench spot, with Benjamin Macome out of the mix.

Manuel Montoro takes the final spot on the bench.
