Argentina coach Santiago Phelan has dropped Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino and Juan Figallo from the squad to face Ireland in the final Test of their European tour on Monday.

The pair paid the price for their part in the thumping 39-22 defeat by France on Saturday.

Horacio Agulla also misses out because of an injury suffered during that game.

The wing took a nasty blow to the head after clashing with Maxime Mermoz and had to be stretchered off suffering from concussion.

But there was better news for 'Magic Man' Juan Martin Hernandez, who has recovered from a knock picked up in the 26-12 win over Six Nations Grand Slam champions Wales.

Phelan has also recalled Santiago Fernandez and Maximiliano Bustos for the Ireland game.

Argentina squad: Ayerza, Bosch, Bustos, Camacho, Carizza, Cordero, Creevy, Cubelli, De la Vega, Cabello, Lobbe (capt), Fernandez, Kodela, Guillemain, Guinazu, Hernandez, Imhoff, Landajo, Leguizamon, Leonardi, Lobo, Montero, Postiglioni, Sanchez, Senatore, Tiesu, Tuculet, Vallejos, Vergallo
