Argentina Rugby World Cup Fixtures, Squad, Group, Guide
How They Qualified
Argentina qualified automatically for the 2019 tournament.
Hooker Agustín Creevy is the heartbeat of the team. Lineout specialist Guido Petti and ten Nicolás Sánchez are able allies.
The Coach – Mario Ledesma
A giant of Argentinian rugby who played in four World Cups. The former hooker replaced Daniel Hourcade, who quit last June after a defeat by Scotland left his side with two wins in 18 games.
Squad depth. Much could depend on the access to overseas-based players, with Ledesma able to go outside the country on a ‘need-to’ basis – hence Saracens prop Juan Figallo’s call-up at the start of the Rugby Championship.
