ARGENTINA No8 Juan Manuel Leguizamon has been named captain for Saturday’s clash against England at Twickenham, with regular skipper Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe out injured.

The 30-year-old Lyon back-row forward, who has 52 caps, takes over the armband for all three November Tests after Fernandez Lobbe fractured his elbow playing for Toulon 10 days ago.

Leguizamon said: “I’m happy with the responsibility I have been given and hope to carry it out to the best of my ability.”
