Figallo blow for Argentina

ARGENTINA will have to plan without tighthead prop Juan Figallo for Saturday's international against Ireland after his citing arising from their loss to France was upheld, writes Conor George.

Figallo was initially cited for 'striking with the head,' but that was recategorised as 'charging into a ruck or maul' and was deemed to be at the mid-range of IRB sanctions.

A suspension of three weeks was imposed on the player.
