Felipe Contepomi is relying on the youngsters in his Argentina team to help him through his fourth World Cup.
As captain and kicking flyhalf, the 34-year-old Contepomi is one of several veterans from the Pumas squad that clinched third place at the last World Cup.
But Contepomi says it is up to the younger players to ease the load upon him and the likes of Rodrigo Roncero and Mario Ledesma.
Contepomi says "with all the energy other players bring to the squad, it makes things easier."
