Cape Town - Argentina have been boosted by the return of hooker Agustin Creevy, who starts their final Rugby Championship match against South Africa on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 21:40 SA time and the match will be broadcast LIVE on SuperSport 1.

Creevy replaces Julian Montoya in the starting line-up after missing their recent defeat to Australia, as the Pumas look for a win at home.

In other changes to the pack, Marcos Kremer comes in at lock for Guido Petti while flank Tomas Lezana drops out for Javier Ortega Desio.

There is only one alteration to the backline as the dangerous Emiliano Boffelli is at fullback with Joaquin Tuculet dropping down to the replacements bench where he joins veteran flyhalf Benjamin Urdapilleta.

The Pumas have lost both their games so far in the competition and face a Springbok side looking to seal the Rugby Championship title in Salta.
