Having endured a rough international year in 2013 in which the highlight was a win over Italy in Rome Los Pumas bounced back to compete noteworthy wins over Australia and France and do so on both ocassions without many regular players from previous years. A combination of injuries and a different coaching philosophy led Daniel Hourcade to field  ten starting players against France who were seldom used or not used at all by Santiago Phelan. Argentina's November 2014 tour of Scotland, Italy and France featured two wins and a loss making it the most successful Pumas European tour since 2006. Juan Cruz Guillemaín, Facundo Isa, Tomás Lezana and Guido Petti all made their debuts.
