Newcastle Falcons prop Eduardo Bello starts for Argentina on Saturday when they take on France in Mendoza.

The game kicks off at 8pm UK time and is being shown live on Sky Sports, with tight-head Bello in line to earn his 22nd test cap.

Fellow Falcon Pedro Rubiolo is also in Argentina as part of the Pumas’ training squad having recovered from a dislocated shoulder, but is not involved in Saturday’s game.

Following Saturday’s opener in Mendoza, Argentina and France meet again in Buenos Aires on Saturday July 13, followed by an away game against Uruguay on Saturday July 20 in Maldonado.

Los Pumas then move into their Rugby Championship campaign, with away tests against New Zealand on August 10 and 17, followed by Australia at home on August 31 and September 7 before South Africa at home on September 21 and away on September 28.
