The inclusion of the young winger is a further indication of the chances that Santiago Phelan will be moving players from the wing to play centre and fullback. Lucas González Amorosino played the entire season for Montpellier at fullback and is all but certain to start in the position for Los Pumas in The Rugby Championship. Horacio Agulla started for Leicester on the right wing but was used on occassion at outside centre. With Argentina looking to play a more attacking brand of rugby the wing positions are likely to be filled by Juan Imhoff who had an outstanding debut season for Racing Métro and either Gonzalo Camacho or Martín Bustos Moyano. Camacho won the award for Game Changer of the season in the Aviva Premiership while Bustos Moyano had a solid second season in France and is Argentina´ best goalkicker.
Rafael Carballo is the squads remaining winger with the player also capable of playing in the centres. Like Agulla he was utilized in the midfield by Bordeaux-Begles at times this past season. Argentina´ squad is lacking specialist centres with Gonzalo Tiesi only just having returned to the field this past Saturday. It leaves Phelan with the choice of continuning to play Marcelo Bosch in the 13 shirt and utilizing either Santiago Fernández or Martín Rodríguez at 12. Or, moving Agulla to outside centre to partner one of these three. It would seem to be the likely scenario for Los Pumas´ debut match in The Rugby Championship against South Africa on August 18 in Cape Town. This would explain the inclusion of Montero who brings the total of likely wingers in the squad to four as he joins Bustos Moyano, Camacho and Imhoff.
