Adam Ashley-Cooper looks to be the most likely to miss out after a concussion, while Berrick Barnes has been for x-rays thanks to his chest injury, while Digby Ioane, Radike Samo and Tatafu Polota-Nau could all be scratched, which would mean that more than fifteen 2011 Wallabies are out of action.
Deans said it was just a case of organising logistics.
"We're doing those numbers (on who won't be fit to play)," he said.
"We are going to have to bring some players across from Australia."
The Wallabies coach said that the fact the team was on the road was only going to make it more difficult, for even the luxury of flying in fit players would be compromised by how quickly they could make the long haul to South America.
“It's going to be very challenging," he said.
"We've delved so deep into our resources there's going to be a couple of players who won't have visas organised. Getting a visa for Argentina is not straight forward. There is a possibility we may have a few blokes who won't get there in time for one training.”
