Landajo back for All Blacks clash

Argentina coach Daniel Hourcade brought in Martin Landajo as one of three changes to his starting line-up to face New Zealand.

Guido Petti returns to replace Javier Ortega Desio, who shifts to the flank, while Landajo starts ahead of Tomas Cubelli.

Ramiro Moyano takes Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino's spot on the wing from the team that lost to Australia last time out in the Rugby Championship.

"We had a very good 55 minutes in Hamilton," Hourcade said.

"We must learn not to wear out and to manage energy."

Argentina are winless in 23 Tests against the All Blacks, and were beaten 57-22 when the teams met in Hamilton earlier this month.

They are bottom of the Rugby Championship table with just one win from four ahead of Saturday's meeting in Buenos Aires.

Argentina team in full: 1. Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, 2. Agustin Creevy, 3. Ramiro Herrera, 4. Guido Petti, 5. Matias Alemanno, 6. Pablo Matera, 7. Javier Ortega Desio, 8. Facundo Isa, 9.
