Two major casualties as Los Pumas confirm 31-man RWC squad

Head coach Mario Ledesma has named his 31-man Los Pumas Rugby World Cup squad – excluding high profile Argentinian internationals.

European based Facundo Isa and Santiago Cordero were the headline exclusions from the squad, which did include three players based in Europe.

Less surprisingly there is no room for Harlequins’ Martin Landajo nor Racing 92’s Juan Imhoff, although neither had been involved in the Puma’s most recent Rugby Championship campaign.

Ledesma rolled back the non-European policy earlier this year, with the understanding that players playing in Super Rugby would be favoured over their northern employed compatriots.
