South Africa's Jaco Peyper has been appointed the match referee.

The assistants are Australian's Nic Berry and Jordan Way.

Australia's Damon Murphy will be the TMO.

What have the coaches said?

Argentina head coach Mario Ledesma: "Some changes are required and others are combinations of players that we wanted to see."

"We wanted to see Santiago Carreras starting and we wanted to see the Cinti-Chocobares duo, the same as Lavanini-Alemanno (at lock).

"We have to find the balance between testing players and bringing the game plan we want to the pitch."

New Zealand head coach Ian Foster: "With five Tests in a row and a six-day turnaround between these two Argentinian Tests we were always going to make some selection changes."

"Five Tests in a row demanded that.

"But the good thing is that we have a group that has been focusing on the same opposition for the last two weeks, so our preparation time hasn't been compromised. We are expecting a huge response from Argentina and we have to make sure we are prepared for that because we know what a wounded beast is like."
