Agulla to wing it against Namibia for Pool C closer

9 October 2015

Bath Rugby wing Horacio Agulla starts for Argentina against Namibia on Sunday in the final Pool C match of the Rugby World Cup (k.o. 12:00).

Former Bath prop Juan Pablo Orlandi once again starts at tighthead. The Pumas make 11 changes for their second trip to the Leicester City Stadium in the tournament, and field their youngest World Cup XV since 1999.

A quarter-final spot as runners up of Pool C is in sight for the Pumas, having won all their pool games bar a narrow loss to the All Blacks.

This will be the third time Argentina and Namibia have met, with the previous two encounters ending in victory for the Pumas at the 2003 and 2007 World Cups.
