Tokyo - Flyhalf Benjamin Urdapilleta was handed his first Test start in six years as Argentina made four changes on Thursday for their Rugby World Cup match against Tonga, following their nail-biting defeat to France.

Urdapilleta, who scored two penalties after coming on as a replacement in the 23-21 loss in Tokyo, comes in for Nicholas Sanchez who drops to the bench.

Left wing Santiago Carreras will make his first Test start, while hooker Julian Montoya and No 8 Tomas Lezana are the other new faces for Saturday's game in Hanazono.

There was no place in the 23 for Juan Manuel Leguizamon, who is just one Test appearance away from equalling Felipe Contepomi's Argentina record of 87.

Argentina will be gunning for a bonus-point win against a tough Tongan team who gave England a physical workout in their 35-3 defeat last weekend.
