Sanchez replaces Hernandez for Argentina

Argentina coach Santiago Phelan has named Bordeaux fly-half Nicolas Sanchez as replacement for injured first-choice Juan Martin Hernandez in their team to face South Africa in the Rugby Championship.


Racing-Metro star Hernandez pulled out of the team Wednesday with a hamstring injury sustained while training in Buenos Aires.


Saturday’s game in Mendoza follows South Africa’s 27-6 win over the Pumas in Cape Town last Saturday.
