Los Pumas name 46-man Rugby World Cup squad and it's not just Jaguares players

Los Pumas Head Coach Mario Lesdesma has unveiled his 46 strong training squad ahead of the Rugby Championship and the Rugby World Cup in Japan.

The Pumas are in the same pool as England, France, Tonga and the USA.

Assistant coaches – Nicolás Fernández Miranda and Martín Gaitán – will be accompanied by Juan Fernández Lobbe, also an assistant coach and Gonzalo Longo as team manager.

He has included both Premiership and Top 14 players, expectedly rowing back on the Los Puma’s Super Rugby based selection policy.

In March Ledesma clarified: “For years, the players could not evolve for Los Pumas if they were not part of the Jaguares. Recently, the rule has relaxed somewhat, in the sense that when the need arises, we summon expatriate players to a specific position. We will always favour the guy of the franchise. But if not, we will call on expatriates.”
