    Cape Town - Jaguares head coach Raul Perez and the team's selectors have unveiled a 44-man training squad ahead of pre-season.

    The Argentine franchise are gearing up for their second season in Super Rugby, and once again are pooled in Africa 2 alongside the Kings, Sharks and Lions.

    Established internationals such as Ramiro Herrera, Agustín Creevy, Facundo Isa, Martín Landajo, Nicolás Sánchez, Juan Martín Hernández, Matías Moroni and Santiago Cordero are all named in the squad.

    Perez said: "The immediate challenge is to put in practice within the group all the experience we accumulated in 2016.

    "We are coming back to compete in the most important tournament in the world and the most demanding, and with a season under our belt it is very different.

    About the game and the first opponent, he said: "The expectation we have set is to go game by game. And I remember when we played against the Kings in Port Elizabeth, our indiscipline cost us. And I think that's the challenge.

    "Then we will on preparing for the second game, which is against the Stormers in Cape Town, and build on what we do well in the opener and have the reflexes to change what we don't do so well."
