    2017-02-23 14:25

    Port Elizabeth - Jaguares head coach Raúl Pérez has announced his side for Saturday's clash against the Kings in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

    There a few injury enforced changes to the Jaguares side that took the field last season.

    With Nicolas Sánchez injured Joaquín Díaz Bonilla will start at flyhalf this week, while Gonzalo Bertranou will start at nine with Jaguares and Argentina regular scrumhalf Martín Landajo also out for the first few rounds of Super Rugby.

    Argentina stalwart Juan Martín Hernández is injured, meaning Jerónimo de la Fuente will start at inside centre for the Jaguares and he will be partnered by Matías Moroni at outside centre.

    In the forward pack with Facundo Isa shipping off to France Leonardo Senatore will start in the number eight jersey, flanked by Pablo Matera in the seven jersey and Tomás Lezana who binds in at blindside.

    Coach Pérez has named a strong tight five with Matías Alemanno and Guido Petti binding up in the second row, while Felipe Arregui, Agustín Creevy and Lucas Noguera Paz will spear head the scrum with Creevy named as captain again this season.

    Kick-off on Saturday is at 17:15.
