    2016-05-26 09:29

    Cape Town - Jaguares head coach Raul Pérez has rung the changes to his starting line-up for Friday's Super Rugby clash with the Southern Kings in Port Elizabeth.

    In the backline, Segundo Tuculet comes into the run-on side at inside centre where he replaces Matías Orlando, who moves to the right wing. 

    Orlando takes over from Emiliano Boffelli, who shifts to the left wing where he is preferred to Lucas González Amorosino.

    In the forwards, veteran flank Juan Manuel Leguizamón starts at openside where he replaces Tomás Lezana, who moves to the blindside.

    Lezana comes in for Pablo Matera, while Guido Petti replaces Matías Alemanno at lock and regular captain Agustin Creevy returns at hooker in the final change to the starting line-up that lost to the Lions last weekend.

    Creevy returns from suspension and comes in for Julián Montoy who starts on the bench where he replaces Facundo Bosch while Alemanno will provide cover for the second row.
