SQAUD ANNOUNCEMENT: Jaguares centre Jerónimo De la Fuente has not been included in the 26-man squad after he sustained an injury ahead of the Rugby Championship match in South Africa.

The team's doctor Guillermo Boto confirmed that the player suffered a contraction in the soleus (lower calf) of his right leg.

Regular Argentina 15-man stars Juan Imhoff and Matias Moroni will also miss the first leg of Rugby Championship. The utility back Imhoff and  centre Moroni are on Sevens duty at the Rio Olympics.

Meanwhile, head coach Daniel Hourcade announced a list of 26 players who have made the cut.

The squad includes 22-year-old debutant Felipe Arregui who has enough talent to ensure him a spot in the 23-man squad. Mark Kremer performance in the Under-20 side also ensured him a call-up to the senior side.

The 26-man squad trained at Saint Jhon's school and their last day of training will be Pilar. Later in the week the squad will travel to Johannesburg but will first make a stop in San Pablo.

The side will face South Africa on August 20 at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.

Argentina squad:

Forwards: Nahual Tetaz Chaparro, Felipe Arregui, Lucas Noguera Paz, Augutin Creevy, Julian Montoya, Ramiro Herrera, Enrique Pieretto, Matias Alemano, Marcos Kremer, Tomas Lavanini, Guido Petti, Juan Leguizamon, Pablo Metera, Javier Orteha Desio.

Backs: Tomas Cubelli, Facundo Isa, Martin Landajo, Santiago Gonzales Iglesias, Nicolas Sanchez, Santiago Cordero, Manual Montero, Ramiro Moyano, Juan Martin Hernandez, Matias Orlando, Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino, Joaquin Tuculet.
