    Quesada made a few changes to the team that beat the Bulls 39-24 in Pretoria last weekend.

    In the backline, Santiago Carreras moves from fullback to right wing in place of Sebastian Cancelliere, with Joaquin Tuculet starting in the No 15 jersey.

    Up front, Marcos Kremer moves from lock to flank, with Francisco Gorrissen dropping out and Matias Alemanno taking Kremer's spot in the second row.

    Mayco Viyas also starts at loosehead prop in place of Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro.
