Rosario - Argentina coach Santiago Phelan on Thursday named an unchanged side to face Australia in Saturday's Rugby Championship match.

Argentina have won four of 18 matches against Australia, with their last victory coming in 1997. One of the games ended in a draw.

Phelan made two changes among his replacements. Leonardo Senatore and Nicolas Sanchez are in, taking over from Tomas Vallejos and Martin Rodriguez.
