Los Pumas headcoach Daniel Hourcade appears set to make two alterations to the starting fifteen for Argentina's second Rugby Championship warm-up fixture against Grenoble. In todays training Marcos Ayerza and Jerónimo de La Fuente trained in place of Lucas Noguera Paz and Juan Martín Hernández in what was an otherwise unchanged lineup to that which won 44-21 against Grenoble in San Isidro on Friday. The selection of Ayerza is tactical while de La Fuente is set to replace the injured El Mago. Hernández was replaced at half time at CASI with a minor injury in his left leg.   


The final lineup for the second match will be named in the coming days. It is to be the final match played in Argentina before the squad travels to South Africa ahead of the Springboks v Pumas clash in Pretoria in the opening round of the Rugby Championship. Hourcade will confirm his squad for the match following Saturday's match in Catamarca. The formation utilized by Hourcade in today's training can be seen below.
