    2017-03-23 17:13

    Cape Town - Jaguares head coach Raul Pérez has made just two changes to his starting XV to take on the Reds this weekend in Buenos Aires.

    The Jaguares' third home game in a row sees the Argentine franchise chasing a fourth win of the season, having seen off the Kings, Lions and Cheetahs so far.

    Fresh from an impressive debut last weekend, Bautista Ezcurra starts on the wing for the Jaguares in place of Santiago Cordero.

    The other change comes upfront, where loosehead prop Lucas Noguera Paz gets the nod ahead of Santiago García Botta.

    New faces on the bench include hooker Roberto Tejerizo, who takes the pace of Julián Montoya, while Guido Petti wears number 19 instead of Ignacio Larrague.

    Rodrigo Baez, Nicolás Sánchez and Emiliano Boffelli are also all named amongst the replacements.
