Argentina re-appoint Santiago Phelan as coach

The Argentina Rugby Union have re-appointed Santiago Phelan on a two year contract after he led the team to the Rugby World Cup quarter finals.

Thirty-seven-year-old former international centre Phelan will lead the Pumas into their first ever Four Nations Rugby Championship tournament next year where they will play the Southern hemisphere giants recently-crowned World Cup winners All Blacks, the Springboks and the Wallabies.

Phelan, who replaced Marcelo Loffreda after the 2007 World Cup when they reached the semi-finals, will prepare for the Four Nations with a home test against Italy on June 9 and two against World Cup finalists France on June 16 and 23.

They open their Four Nations campaign against two-time world champions South Africa on August 18 in Durban.
