Tiesi to miss rest of World Cup

Argentina centre Gonzalo Tiesi will miss the rest of the Rugby World Cup after suffering knee ligament damage in the Pumas' 13-9 defeat to England.

Tiesi, the former Harlequins and London Irish player, was injured in a tackle from England lock Courtney Lawes and has been replaced in the Argentina squad by wing Lucas Borges.

Captain Felipe Contepomi suffered bruised ribs against England and also had to be replaced early but he remains part of the Pumas squad.

Borges scored three tries in five matches for Argentina at the last World Cup.
