The 25-year-old isn’t the only member of the squad who has returned after being exiled from the national side since leaving South America two years ago, with Exeter Chiefs wing Santiago Cordero named in the outside backs as he looks to earn his first test cap since October 2017.
The vast majority of the remainder of the side is composed of Jaguares players, including 53-test lock Matias Alemmano, who has been named despite missing most of the Super Rugby season.
Also included are uncapped duo Lucas Mensa and Manuel Montero.
The midfielder and winger have been playing for the Argentina XV in the Americas Rugby Championship, and are the only Argentine-based players in the squad who do not play for the Jaguares.
30-man Argentina squad to face All Blacks:
Matías Alemanno, Agustín Creevy, Juan Figallo, Ramiro Herrera, Facundo Isa, Marcos Kremer, Tomás Lavanini, Juan Manuel Leguizamón, Tomás Lezana, Pablo Matera, Santiago Medrano, Julián Montoya, Javier Ortega Desio, Guido Petti, Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, Mayco Vivas.
