Hasan recalled to Pumas team




Hasan recalled to Pumas team Toulouse prop Omar Hasan will take on some of his team-mates on Saturday, when he lines up for the Argentina team against France in Paris.

Hasan’s recall is one of several changes to the team from that which beat Italy in Rome last weekend.

He displaces Martin Scelzo to the other side of the front row, and Marcos Ayerza drops to the bench. The front-row of Hasan, Sclezo and hooker Mario Ledesma is an entirely France-based one.

Sale’s Ignacio Fernandez Lobbe is back in the second row in place of Esteban Lozada, the only other change to the pack.

In the backs, captain Agustin Pichot – another based in France – returns at scrum-half. Felipe Contempomi also returns at inside cente, moving his brother Manuel to outside centre and Worcester’s Miguel Avramovic out of the team altogether.

Jose Maria Nunez Piossek – also based in France – displaces Horacio Agulla to the bench and Ignacio Corleto to the left wing from the right.
