    Durban - The Jaguares have made wholesale changes to their starting line-up for their final regular-season game of the campaign against the Sharks at Kings Park on Saturday.

    With a playoff spot already secured, head coach Mario Ledesma has rung the changes in order to rest his first-choice team ahead of next weekend.

    Up front, there is a new front-row as Javier Diaz, Santiago Medrano and Julian Montoya come in while second-row Tomas Lavanini, flank Marcos Kremer and No 8 Juan Manuel Leguizamón are the other new faces in the pack.

    The backline is also freshened up as Martin Landajo and Joaquín Díaz Bonilla are the halfbacks, Bautista Ezcurra comes in at No 12, while Sebastian Cancelliere is on the left wing, with Ramiro Moyano moving to fullback.

    Saturday's clash is scheduled for 17:15.
