Argentina coach Michael Cheika made two changes to the run-on side that will face the Springboks in their Rugby Championship clash at Kings Park, with 2015's hattrick hero Juan Imhoff starting at left-wing.

Imhoff, who scored three tries in Argentina's landmark 37-25 win against the Springboks at Kings Park in 2015, comes in to replace Lucio Cinti.

The other starting change sees Matias Moroni starting at outside centre where he replaces Matias Orlando.

Pedro Rubiolo and Bautista Delguy are set to make their Test debuts from the bench as Cheika opted for changes to his substitutes. 

The Test match kicks off at 17:05.
