Argentina make changes ahead of France test



Biarritz centre Marcelo Bosch and Montpellier full-back Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino have been included in the Argentina squad to face France next Saturday in Lille, the national federation announced Sunday.

Also included are Biarritz prop Francisco Gomez Kodela and second row forward Nahuel Lobo of Stade Francais while prop Juan Gomez and centre Felipe Contepomi are left out after picking up injuries during the 26-12 victory over Wales on Saturday in Cardiff.

There were doubts concerning Racing Metro fly-half Juan Martin Hernandez who picked up a knock at the Millennium stadium, but the 30-year-old has been included in the squad to play France who defeated Australia 33-6 on Saturday in Paris.
