Cape Town - Argentina flyhalf Nicolás Sánchez and wing Manuel Montero have been ruled out of Saturday's game against Australia.

The duo were initially named in Daniel Hourcade's side on Thursday but have both been withdrawn following Argentina's captain's run at Twickenham.

As a result Santiago González Iglesias moves to flyhalf, with Jerónimo de la Fuente coming in at inside centre to form a partnership with Matiás Orlando.

Montero meanwhile is replaced on the wing by Ramiro Moyano. Gabriel Ascarate and Lucas González Amorosino are both confirmed on the bench in the 22 and 23 jerseys.
