Argentina team unchanged for Wales after shock defeat of England

Michael Cheika has given a huge vote of confidence to Argentina, naming the same starting team that defeated England last Sunday in London to take the field again this Saturday versus Wales in Cardiff. He has also named the same eight-man bench from Twickenham.

It’s a gutsy call from Cheika in the sense that Argentina were in an 80-minute arm-wrestle with England that went right to the wire before the 30-29 victory was confirmed.

Unlike Wales, they also have a day’s less preparation leading into this second match of their Autumn Nations Series as it was last Saturday when Wayne Pivac’s Welsh team hosted the All Blacks.

The Argentina team that Cheika selected to beat England had shown three changes from the previous outing versus South Africa on September 24, with Newcastle wing Mateo Carreras and props Thomas Gallo and Francisco Gomez-Kodel making the step up.
