ARGENTINA coach Marcelo Loffreda has made three changes to his squad for Saturday's second Test against Ireland.

Squad: Agulla, Fernandez Miranda, Senillosa (all Hindu), Ayerza (Leicester Tigers), Schustermann, Bouza (both Leeds Tykes), Contepomi (Rovigo), De Vedia (Saracens), Durand, Todeschini (both Montpellier), Fernandez Lobbe (Sale Sharks), Fernandez Miranda (Aviron Bayonnais Rugby), Lozada, Gambarini (both CASI), Gonzalez Bonorino (Capitolina), Guinazu (Agen), Henn (Montauban), Leguizamon (London Irish), Leonelli (Glasgow Warriors), Serra (SIC), Vergallo (Jockey Club Rosario), Alvarez (Perpignan).
