Los Pumas ring the changes for Loftus test

Los Pumas head coach Mario Ledesma has made 11 alterations to his starting line-up for their clash with the Springboks in Pretoria on Saturday.

In the pack, Pablo Matera and Marcos Kremer are the only survivors to the side that went down to the Springboks last week while Ramiro Moyano and Jeronimo de la Fuente also retain their positions.

Kremer shifts from the second back to the flank while De la Fuente moves from inside centre to outstide centre and is joined in midfield by Lucas Mensa with Joaquin Tuculet returning to fullback in place of Emilliano Boffelli.

Joaquín Díaz Bonilla takes over from Nicholas Sanchez with Felipe Ezcurra replacing Tomas Cubelli. 

In the front row Santiago Medrano and Mayco Vivas start with Figallo and Chaparro starting from the bench with Julian Montoya and Agustin Creevy trading starting roles. Facundo Isa is rested for the clash with Javier Ortega Desio reclaiming the no.8 jersey with Tomas Lavanini and Guido Petti take over from Kremer and Matias Alemanno in the second-row.
