Buenos Aires - Flying Racing 92 wing Juan Imhoff will miss out on playing Italy and France next month after Argentina coach Daniel Hourcade named a 28-man squad on Tuesday.

But only players now registered in Super Rugby are eligible for Los Pumas, meaning Imhoff, Juan Fernandez Lobbe (Toulon) and Marcelo Bosch (Saracens) miss out.

Argentina play Italy in Santa Fe on June 12 before taking on France on June 19 and 25 in Tucuman.
