    2018-07-19 16:15

    Cape Town - Jaguares head coach Mario Ledesma has made several changes to his squad to face the Lions in the Super Rugby quarter-final at Ellis Park.

    With qualification already secured last weekend, the Argentinian outfit decided to rest a number of key first team players.

    All those duly return with Emiliano Boffelli, Matias Orlando, Jeronimo de la Fuente, Matias Moroni, Nicolas Sanchez and Gonzalo Bertranou named in the backline.

    Among the forwards, out go six of the eight which started against the Sharks and in come Javier Ortega Desio, Tomas Lezana, Guido Petti, Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, Agustin Creevy and Santiago Garcia Botta, while Marcos Kremer is shifted to lock.

    On the bench, Ledesma has decided to go with a six-two split with Matias Alemanno, Tomas Lavanini and Juan Manuel Leguizamon providing lock and back-row cover.

    Kick-off is at 15:05.
