Argentina included foreign-based players for All Blacks clash

Argentina included five European-based players but omitted Juan Imhoff from their squad for next weekend’s Rugby Championship match against New Zealand, the Argentinian Rugby Union announced.

The Argentinian Rugby Union announced that Argentina has included five European-based players and omitted Juan Imhoff from their squad for next weekend’s Rugby Championship match against New Zealand.

The Argentine governing body has recently softened restrictions on individuals with contracts outside the country representing the Pumas. And in the process, Head coach Mario Ledesma picked four European-based players: fly-half Nicolas Sanchez, who is with Stade Francais, Toulon back-rower Facundo Isa, Bordeaux-Begles winger Santiago Cordero and Saracens prop Juan Figallo.

But Ledesma omitted winger Imhoff, and Castres fly-half Benjamin Urdapilleta, is also absent, because of his injury.
