    Hernández to start at flyhalf for Jaguares

    2017-03-16 20:44

    Cape Town - Veteran playmaker Juan Martín Hernández will start at flyhalf for the Jaguares when they take on the Cheetahs in Buenos Aires on Saturday.

    The 34-year-old's selection is one of two changes made to the Jaguares starting line-up after last weekend's win over the Lions and he replaces Nicolás Sánchez, who is serving a one-match suspension. 

    Jaguares head coach Raul Perez has also brought in Marcos Kremer to the second row as a replacement for Guido Petti, who injured his left ankle at training on Tuesday.

    Experienced prop Ramiro Herrera is set to make his first appearance of the season from the replacements bench, while former Argentina Sevens representative Bautista Ezcurra is in line to make his Super Rugby debut after being named as back-line cover. Agustín Creevy will captain the side.
