The Jaguares have made 11 personnel changes and two positional swaps ahead of their first-ever Super Rugby quarter-final against the Lions in Johannesburg on Saturday.
The only surviving members of the team that started in the loss against the Sharks last week are Bautista Delguy, Matías Moroni, captain Pablo Matera and Marcos Kremer.
Moroni moves from outside centre to the left wing, while Matiás Orlando starts in the No 13 jersey. Kremer shifts from blindside flank to No 5 lock to accommodate Tomás Lezana in the back row.
The host of changes sees Emiliano Boffelli return at fullback, and Nicolás Sanchez and Gonzalo Bertranou start as the halfback pairing, while there’s also an all-new front row consisting of Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, Agustín Creevy and Santiago García Botta.
Jaguares – 15 Emiliano Boffelli, 14 Bautista Delguy, 13 Matias Orlando, 12 Jerónimo de la Fuente, 11 Matías Moroni, 10 Nicolás Sánchez, 9 Gonzalo Bertranou, 8 Javier Ortega Desio, 7 Tomás Lezana, 6 Pablo Matera (c), 5 Marcos Kremer, 4 Guido Petti, 3 Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, 2 Agustín Creevy, 1 Santiago García Botta.
