Gonzalo starts for Scotland


Dragons RFC scrum half Gonzalo Bertranou will start his third game of the Autumn when Argentina face Scotland at Murrayfield in the third match of their November tour of the UK on Saturday (kick-off 3.15pm).

Julian Montoya returns to captain Argentina in one of four changes for their last test of the year. Montoya had been named to play against Wales last week but then withdrew with a rib injury but will be back to lead the side up against the Scots, who they narrowly defeated in July in a three-match series in Argentina.

Also in the front row, Eduardo Bello is in for Francisco Gomez Kodela while Matias Orlando replaces Matias Moroni at outside centre and Bautista Delguy takes over from Mateo Carreras on the wing.

Veteran fly half Nicolas Sanchez is back among the replacements for a possible first outing since tearing a calf muscle in the opening 20 minutes of Argentina’s 26-18 test win over Scotland in July.

Argentina: Juan Cruz Mallia, Bautista Delguy, Matias Moroni, Jeronimo de la Fuente, Emiliano Boffelli, Santiago Carreras, Gonzalo Bertranou; Thomas Gallo, Julian Montoya (c), Eduardo Bello, Matias Alemanno, Tomas Lavanni, Juan Martin Gonzalez, Marcos Kremer, Pablo Matera

Replacements: Ignacio Ruiz, Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, Santiago Medrano, Lucas Paulos, Facunda Isa, Lautano Bazan Velez, Nicolas Sanchez, Matias Moroni.
