Argentinian coach Santiago Phelan has left out Horacio Agulla, Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino and Juan Figallo for the Pumas final Autumn International against Ireland next Saturday.

All three played in Argentina's disappointing 39-22 defeat by France here on Saturday with only Agulla being left out because of injury.

The wing took a heavy blow to the head in a sickening clash of heads with Maxime Mermoz during the game and had to be stretchered off suffering from concussion.

However, Phelan felt confident enough to restore star back Juan Martin Hernandez, 'Magic man' having recovered sufficiently from a knock he took in the 26-12 win over Six Nations Grand Slam champions Wales the previous week.

Phelan also recalled Santiago Fernandez and Maximiliano Bustos, who both play their club rugby in France for Montpellier.

Argentina traveled to Dublin on Sunday and will have their first training session on Monday ahead of their 18th meeting with the Irish.
