Contepomi recalled for centre role
Argentina have recalled veteran centre Felipe Contepomi, who missed the inaugural Rugby Championship, to their side to play Wales at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday. Contepomi (35) had not been named in coach Santiago Phelan’s squad for the November internationals. He will play at inside centre alongside Gonzalo Tiesi, who will make his first appearance for Argentina since he was injured in the opening match against England at last year’s World Cup.
Outhalf Juan Martin Hernandez reverts to his original position of fullback with his understudy Nicolas Sanchez taking over at number 10. Lock Patricio Albacete will miss the match after sustaining a fracture near his eye.
