    Jaguares skipper back for Stormers duel

    2018-06-29 06:41

    Buenos Aires - Skipper Pablo Matera will make his first appearance for the Jaguares since April having been named in the starting line-up for Saturday’s Super Rugby encounter against the Stormers.

    The flanker returned to action during Argentina’s disappointing June series, but he hasn’t played for the franchise since their encounter with the Brumbies.

    He is joined in the back-row by Tomas Lezana, who replaces Marcos Kremer, and Javier Ortega Desio.

    Other than that, Mario Ledesma has kept faith with the side that defeated the Sharks 29-13 late last month.

    There are alterations among the replacements, however, with Diego Fortuny, Juan Manuel Leguizamon, Joaquin Diaz Bonila and Matias Moroni coming into the match-day 23.

    Saturday's clash is scheduled for 19:40 (SA time).
