The new skipper Lisandro Arbizu will be playing in his third World Cup, after bringing a decade of flair and inventiveness to the Argentinean back line.

He has already skippered the Pumas before and was made the country_s youngest captain when he played against Spain in 1992.

A place-kicker, he has the job of uniting an Argentinean side disrupted by a management row that has seen a coach sacked and the Rugby Board of the country withdraw the submission of the World Cup squad after it had been made.
