Currently ranked 20th on the World Rugby ranking, The Los Leones come into this encounter off the back of a 20-3 win over another African side, Namibia in a Four Nations tournament played on 21 June in Bucharest, Romania and in their first African foray since 2012 when they defeated Namibia 38-37 in Windhoek, Namibia.

Coached by Santiago Santos who played for the side between 1982 and 1992, the Los Leones have in their ranks players such as fly half Pierre-Emmanuel Garcia who has had stints at leading French clubs Castres and Clermont Auvergne, hard running Jaime Nava who is the skipper of the side and fullback Sergi Aubannell, players who are expected to light up the stage.

This will be the first ever test match between the two sides, despite the two teams having met severally in the sevens version of the game and it promises to be an exciting encounter.
