Given my limited knowledge of Argentine rugger... I really don't know f this team is any good or not. The presence of Conto seems to indicate it could be but I'm sceptical, mainly because most of that team play for teams I've never heard of in Argentina. Secondly all the guys that are coming from Europe are coming from relatively dud teams. Or if they do come from a good club, they don't start there save Felipe.
This test series could be one of the biggest non-events in rugby history...
