Argentina wing Ramiro Moyano has been added to their Rugby Championship squad for the final round clash against Australia to be played in Salta after he made a successful recovery from a rib injury.

The 28-year-old sustained the injury against the Wallabies during their round four clash in Gold Coast where he left the field just after the half-hour mark and had to miss the subsequent round against New Zealand which his side went on to lose 35-17.

Moyano has been reinstated in the 30-man squad as a replacement for Bautista Delguy, who has been sidelined with a shoulder injury.

The other changes also see Manuel Montero and Santiago Grondona replacing Matias Osadczuk and injured Tomas Lezana respectively.

Argentina must win their final round clash against Australia on Saturday if they are to finish third in the tournament.

Forwards: Matias Alemanno, Agustin Creevy, Diego Fortuny, Santiago Garcia Botta, Santiago Grondona, Ramiro Herrera, Marcos Kremer, Tomas Lavanini, Juan Manuel Leguizamon, Pablo Matera, Santiago Medrano, Julian Montoya, Javier Ortega Desio, Guido Petti, Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, Juan Pablo Zeiss
