Leicester Tigers will play Argentina at Welford Road in September as part of Marcos Ayerza's testimonial year.

The match will double as a World Cup warm-up for the Pumas and will kick-off at 3pm on September 5. It will be an occasion which replicates the game prior to the 2007 World Cup when Marcelo Loffreda's Argentina side won 41-21.

Ayerza, who has clocked up more than 200 appearances for Tigers since his debut in 2006, said: "I'm very happy to have final confirmation that my club Tigers will play my country Argentin‎a before the World Cup in what looks to be another historic match at Welford Road."
