Contepomi to lead Pumas vs Boks: (team sheet)

Legendary Pumas utility back Felipe Contepomi will captain his side in the first match of the second addition of the TeamsheetsRugby Championship as they head to Soweto for the opener against the Springboks.

The Stade Francais player will don the no.12 jersey and replace talismanic captain Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe who has suffered a calf injury.  Lobbe is replaced by Leonardo Senatore in the back row and will be part of a new back row combination with flanks Pablo Matera and Juan Manuel Leguizamon.

The new look backline features left wing Juan Imhoff, flyhalf Nicolas Sanchez and scrumhalf Martin Landajo who will be looking to create a bit of magic that may see them down the Boks in SA for the first time in history.
