Argentina stick with side which beat Scotland

6:14 pm on 7 October 2011

The Argentina coach Santiago Phelan has reverted largely to the side that dramatically beat Scotland in the pool phase for the Puma's quarter-final against the All Blacks in Auckland on Sunday.

The only change from the starting line-up which beat the Scots 13-12 is that enforced by the tournament-ending knee injury to number eight Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe, who is replaced by Leonardo Senatore.

The team is captained by Felipe Contepomi, who needs just five points on Sunday to overtake the legendary Puma great Hugo Porta as Argentina's all-time leading points scorer.
