    2017-05-11 17:47

    Cape Town - Jaguares head coach Raúl Pérez has opted to make seven changes to his side for this Saturday's clash with the Force in Buenos Aires.

    Martín Landajo makes a welcome first start of the year, with the Argentina scrumhalf partnering Juan Martín Hernández.

    Two more changes to the back division come at inside centre and on the left wing, with the return of Jerónimo de la Fuente and Batista Ezcurra.

    In the back row veteran Juan Manuel Leguizamón starts in the seven shirt, with Leonardo Senatore dropping to the bench as Benjamin Macome gets a run at No 8.

    Matías Alemanno comes into the second row to take the place of Marcos Kremer, who drops out of the matchday 23 as Tomás Lavanini comes onto the bench.

    The front row remains unchanged, with Agustín Creevy captaining the side once again.

    There also three other news faces on the bench; replacement hooker Julían Montoya, tighthead prop Felipe Arregui, and a welcome return too for Manuel Montero.
