The Pumas have rejigged their side to take on the Wallabies in their final Rugby Championship Test in Salta this weekend.

Argentina coach Mario Ledesma has made seven changes to his matchday 23 for the clash after a 35-17 loss to the All Blacks last weekend.

One of the biggest returning names is winger Ramiro Moyano.

Moyano suffered a rib injury in their last encounter with the Wallabies and missed Argentina's New Zealand Test.

Halfback Gonzalo Bertranou returns to the team as well as the Pumas look to try and relegate the Wallabies to a last-placed finish in the Rugby Championship.

Argentina has beaten both South Africa and the Wallabies in the tournament so far and a win this weekend would ensure they don't add another fourth placing to their record.

The Wallabies take on the Pumas in Salta on Saturday October 6, kicking off at 7;45pm local, Sunday 9:45am AEDT, LIVE on FOX SPORTS and Channel Ten.


IN: Gonzalo Bertranou, Matias Orlando, Santiago Medrano, Ramiro Moyano, Juan Manuel Leguizamon, Santiago Gonzalez Iglesias, Sebastian Cancelliere

OUT: Tomas Lezana, Martin Landajo, Juan Pablo Zeiss, Gaston Cortes, Bautista Delguy, Juan Cruz Mallia, Bautista Ezcurra
