Puma Squad for Last Two RC Tests


Mario Ledesma has announced a 30-man squad for the final two Tests of the 2018 Rugby Championships. The initial focus is on the game against New Zealand this coming weekend, and he may change the squad before Australia arrive next week.

Argentina are without the services of wing Ramiro Moyano when they take on New Zealand in their Rugby Championship Test in Buenos Aires on Saturday.

The 28-year-old is still recovering from a rib injury sustained against Australia in Brisbane earlier this month.

Apart from Moyano, Argentina head coach Mario Ledesma has also left out back-up fly-half Joaquin Diaz Bonilla, prop Enrique Pieretto and back-row duo Leonardo Senatore and Rodrigo Bruni from the 30-man squad for this weekend’s Test. He may recall some of the players before the Test against Australia.
