Team News: Hill to captain Wales against Argentina

Cory Hill will lead Wales against Argentina on Saturday in a side that contains eight personnel changes from the starting XV that beat the Springboks in Washington last weekend.

Hill, one of two tour co-captains, will lead his country for the first time in the first of two Tests against the Pumas.

Hill will pack down alongside Adam Beard in the second row and there is one change in the front row with Wyn Jones coming into the side to start alongside Elliot Dee and Dillon Lewis.

Seb Davies and Ross Moriarty remain in the back row and are joined by James Davies at openside flanker.


Scarlets half-backs Gareth Davies and Rhys Patchell are named at nine and ten, with Hadleigh Parkes partnering Scott Williams in the midfield.
