LONDON, 15 Oct - Argentina prop Juan Figallo has been called up to replace Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, who is out for the remainder of the tournament after tearing his femoral biceps in training after making two RWC 2015 appearances.

Figallo, the 27-year-old Salta-born prop (pictured left), has earned 22 caps and scored one try for Argentina.

He was part of the pre-selection squad ahead of England 2015, but was cut from the final 31 due to a knee injury.

His most recent international was the 33-15 defeat by New Zealand in The Rugby Championship at La Plata, Argentina, on September 28, 2013.

The Saracens player joined the Argentina squad on Thursday.
