Argentina coach Santiago Phelan has named a 35-man home-based squad for the training camp ahead of this summer's Tests against Scotland and Italy.

The squad, that will assemble in Pensacola, Florida later this month, includes four players who were part of the Pumas' squad that clinched third place at last year's Rugby World Cup.

They are Manuel Contepomi, Hernan Senillosa, Martin Durand and Federico Serra.

The Pumas' leading players are all based in Europe where club commitments prevent their release.

Argentina entertain Scotland in a two Test series on June 7 and 14 and Italy take on the Pumas on June 28.
