The Puma squad is packed with experience for both the Emirates Dubai Rugby Sevens and the Cell C Nelson Mandela Bay South Africa Sevens.

Seven of the 12 - Nicolas Bruzzone, Jerónimo De la Fuente, Matías Moroni, Ramiro Moyano Joya, Diego Palma, Aníbal Panceyra Garrido and Gaston Revol - played at Rugby World Cup Sevens 2013 in Moscow and the same number of players competed at round one on the Gold Coast last month.

There, in Gómez Cora's first tournament as head coach, the Argentines secured victories against Scotland and Tonga but slid to defeats against Samoa, Australia and France to bow out as Bowl semi-finalists.

They currently sit 11th in the Series standings, a position they will certainly look to build on over the next two rounds.

On day one at the Dubai Rugby Sevens they face pool matches against South Africa, Samoa and Russia.

Argentina Sevens squad, Dubai & South Africa: Santiago Álvarez, Nicolás Bruzzone, Agustín Cortes, Jerónimo De la Fuente, Lucas De Vicenzi, Joaquín Díaz Bonilla, Matías Moroni, Ramiro Moyano Joya, Axel Müller Aranda, Diego Palma, Aníbal Panceyra Garrido, Gastón Revol
