Argentina captain Contepomi returns

1:33 pm on 24 September 2011

Argentina has received a boost ahead of a vital Rugby World Cup Pool B clash against Scotland on Sunday with the return from injury of captain Felipe Contepomi.

The 34-year-old Contepomi missed the Pumas' 43-8 victory over Romania after he suffered what appeared to be a potentially tournament-ending rib injury in the tight 13-9 loss to England in Dunedin in their opening match.

He returns to his preferred poisition of second-five with Martin Rodriguez moving back to fullback after he played there against Romania.
