Mario Ledesma makes minor tweaks for Wallaby clash

Argentina head coach Mario Ledesma has made three changes and a positional switch ahead of his side’s clash against Australia on the Gold Coast.

Ledesma’s men are coming off a spirited effort against the All Blacks last weekend, going down 46-24 and becoming the first team since October 2017 to put at least 24 points on the New Zealanders.

For this weekend’s match flanker Pablo Matera returns to the starting side after appearing off the bench in his last outing. Tomas Lezana has been dropped from the matchday squad.

Ledesma has tweaked his front row for as Santiago Medrano gets the nod at tighthead while Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro moves across to loosehead.

The only change to the backline sees Gonzalo Bertranou replace Martin Landajo in the No. 9 jersey.
