Argentina has reshuffled its backline ahead of Saturday's Test with the Wallabies.

Backline stars Joaquin Tuculet and Santiago Cordero are set to miss the clash, with usual winger Emiliano Boffani moving to fullback for the Canberra Test, with Ramiro Moyano will line up on the left wing in the new formation.

Former Brumbies scrumhalf Tomas Cubelli has been shifted to the bench, with Martin Landajo taking the starting spot against Australia.

The forwards have seen change too, with Tomas Lezana coming into the starting team at no. 8, while Juan Manuel Leguizamon takes the bench spot, with Benjamin Macome out of the miix.

Manuel Montoro takes the final spot on the bench.

The Wallabies take on Argentina on Saturday September 16, kicking off at 8pm AEST LIVE on FOX SPORTS, Network Ten, Win and via RADIO.
