Argentina coach Santiago Phelan has made three changes to the team that beat Wales 12-26 in Cardiff for this weekend's Test match against France in Lille with injured fly-half Juan Martin Hernandez losing his place.

Hernandez misses out after sustaining a knock at the Millennium Stadium, with Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino stepping into replace the Racing Metro player and Biarritz centre Marcelo Bosch filling the void left by the sidelined Felipe Contepomi, who suffered knee ligament damage in Cardiff.

Bath wing Horacio Agulla also earns a starting nod as he takes over from Gonzalo Camacho.

Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino; Horacio Agulla, Gonzalo Tiesi, Marcelo Bosch, Juan Imhoff; Nicolas Sanchez, Martin Landajo; Leonardo Senatore, Juan Manuel Leguizamon, Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe (capt); Julio Farias Cabello, Manuel Carizza; Juan Figallo, Eusebio Guinazu, Marcos Ayerza
