New Bath Rugby signing, Horacio Agulla has been named in the Argentine starting line up to face the All Blacks in Wellington this weekend.

The Pumas drew 16-16 with South Africa in their last game but Santiago Phelan has decided to shuffle his back for the task ahead. Star playmaker Juan Martin Hernandez comes into the team after recovering from injury and replaces Nicolas Sanchez.
