Stephen Jones is a late withdrawal from the Welsh team to face Argentina with Scott Williams coming onto the bench in his place.

Jones - who would have hoped to have broken the Welsh appearance record in the course of the Test against Argentina - is still struggling with a calf problem. Jones was due to start in Wales' opening World Cup warm-up match against England a fortnight ago but withdrew after picking up the injury in the pre-match warm-up. And the injury flared up once again during Friday's Captain's run at the Millennium Stadium.

In Jones' place comes Williams who only made his debut for the national side in their Test against the Barbarians on June 4. Having made more than 20 appearances for the Scarlets, Williams will hope to gatecrash Warren Gatland's 30-man squad for the World Cup with an impressive performance against the Pumas.

Wales: Lee Byrne; Leigh Halfpenny, Jonathan Davies, Jamie Roberts, George North; James Hook, Tavis Knoyle; Paul James, Richard Hibbard, Adam Jones, Bradley Davies, Alun Wyn Jones, Dan Lydiate, Martyn Williams (captain), Andy Powell.

Replacements: Huw Bennett, Ryan Bevington, Jonathan Thomas, Justin Tipuric, Lloyd Williams, Scott Williams, Aled Brew
