Can Argentina upset Australia?

Argentina have received a huge boost ahead of their Rugby World Cup semi-final against Australia on Sunday with skipper Agustin Creevy fit to start while Marcelo Bosch comes in at outside centre.

Captain Creevy was a doubt for the match due to a leg injury but he gets the nod at hooker in a team showing just one change. Bosch missed out on their quarter-final triumph over Ireland through suspension but he starts at No.13 in place of Matias Morini, who scored last Sunday.

Elsewhere Juan Figallo comes on to the bench to take Juan Pablo Orlandi's spot.
