    Cape Town - The Haylett-Petty brothers headline two of five changes to the Melbourne Rebels’ starting line-up ahead of Saturday's clash with the Jaguares

    Kick-off is at 07:15 SA time.

    Flank Richard Hardwick, prop Sam Talakai, lock Geoff Parling, join Ross and Dane Haylett-Petty as the returns to the starting XV, while Jermaine Ainsley, Matt Philip and Lopeti Timani have been included on the bench. 

    Centre Reece Hodge will miss his first match since Round Four in the 2016 Super Rugby season with a hamstring strain, while backrower Angus Cottrell has been omitted. 

    Both Hardwick and Talakai will start on the field for the first time in their Rebels career, while Anaru Rangi’s form has kept Wallabies hooker Jordan Uelese on the bench. 

    Dane Haylett-Petty will return to fullback after overcoming a concussion sustained in Round Five, leaving Jack Maddocks to return to the wing. Tom English will partner Billy Meakes in the centres. 

    Former England international and British and Irish Lion Geoff Parling will partner captain Adam Coleman in the second row. 

    All Melbourne Rebels players will this weekend wear the playing socks of their local Victorian club they represent, as part of the Rebels’ Club and Community Round.
