    Cape Town - The Jaguares have announced their first ever Super Rugby team, which boasts several internationals, that will take on the Cheetahs on Friday.

    Agustín Creevy captains the side from hooker while Tomás Lavanini and Guido Petti make up a formidable lock partnership in front of flankers Pablo Matera, Rodrigo Baez and number eight Leonardo Senatore.

    It's a Pumas half-back pairing too where Martín Landajo and Nicolás Sánchez start while Jerónimo De la Fuente and Matías Moroni are the centres.

    Joaquín Tuculet, Santiago Cordero and Emiliano Boffelli are the back-three, with Santiago Gonzalez Iglesias taking a spot on the bench.
