Cardiff – Argentina captain Julian Montoya has been ruled out of Saturday's match against Wales with a rib injury, the Pumas have announced.

The Pumas added he would be replaced at hooker by the 37-year-old Agustin Creevy, who plays his club rugby in England for London Irish, with No 8 Pablo Matera taking over as captain.
