London - Agustin Creevy, Juan Imhoff and Juan Martin Hernandez have all been ruled out of the Argentina team to take on South Africa in the Rugby World Cup third-place play-off because of injury.

All three came off during Argentina's 29-15 defeat by Australia in the World Cup semi-final on Sunday.

Puma skipper Creevy suffered a hamstring strain, Hernandez hurt his ribs and top try-scorer Imhoff came off with a head injury, the Argentina Rugby Union said.

The bronze playoff is at London's Olympic Stadium on Friday.
