Formidable Jaguares to face Stormers

Argentina captain Agustín Creevy will lead the Jaguares in their pre-season match against the Stormers at Newlands.

Newcomers to Super Rugby, the Jaguares side includes a host of players that featured prominently for Argentina when they secured fourth place at the 2015 World Cup.

With the likes of elusive outside backs Joaquín Tuculet and Santiago Cordero, experienced halfbacks Nicolás Sánchez and Martín Landajo, and hardened forwards Creevy and Juan Manuel Leguizamon, the Jaguares should provide a tough examination for the Stormers.

Saturday’s clash will be the Stormers' final test before their season gets under way against the Bulls on 27 February.

The Jaguares have one more pre-season match against the Lions on 19 February before their Super Rugby season kicks off on 26 February against the Cheetahs.

Jaguares – 15 Joaquín Tuculet, 14 Matías Orlando, 13 Matías Moroni, 12 Jerónimo De la Fuente, 11 Santiago Cordero, 10 Nicolás Sánchez, 9 Martín Landajo, 8 Facundo Isa, 7 Juan Manuel Leguizamon, 6 Tomás Lezana, 5 Tomas Lavanini, 4 Matías Alemanno, 3 Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, 2 Agustín Creevy (captain), 1 Santiago García Botta.
