Highlights of the Rugby Championship encounter between Argentina and Australia.

Facundo Isa, Lucas Mensa, Santiago Socino and Mayco Vivas have all been dropped while veteran flyhalf Nicolas Sanchez has not recovered from injury.

Veteran hooker Agustin Creevy is one of four regulars restored to the squad, with the 37-year-old getting the chance to set a new appearance record for Argentina.

Argentina host the Springboks in Buenos Aires on September 17 and then travel to Durban a week later, with both teams in contention to win the annual Southern Hemisphere tournament.

Jeronimo de la Fuente is fit again after a hamstring injury, as are Juan Imhoff and Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, who were dropped against New Zealand.
