Agulla named at outside centre for Los Pumas

14 November 2014

Bath Rugby's Horacio Agulla will start tonight for Argentina as they take on Italy in Genoa, kick-off 16.15 GMT.

Agulla replaces Marcelo Bosch at outside centre for the game, which was originally due to be played tomorrow but has been rescheduled due to worries about inclement weather forecast for the city of Genoa.

The Pumas have made seven changes in all to the team that lost to Scotland last weekend.

Tomas Cubelli comes into the starting scrum-half shirt, and Juan Martin Hernandez moves to fly-half from inside centre. Lucas Amorosino and Jeronimo De La Fuente line-up on the right wing and at inside centre respectively.

Injured captain Agustin Creevy is replaced at hooker by Matías Cortese, Nahuel Chaparro gets the nod at tighthead and Guido Petti is named in the second row.
