Domingo Miotti’s selection at flyhalf is one of four changes to the Jaguares’ starting lineup for Saturday’s match against the Sharks in Durban.
Miotti made his debut off the bench against the Vodacom Bulls last week when he scored two match-defining tries. And now the 22-year-old has been rewarded with a first-ever start for the Jaguares at the expense of Santiago Gonzalez Iglesias.
An injury to left wing Ramiro Moyano has also resulted in a back three reshuffle, with Emiliano Boffelli switching to wing and Joaquín Tuculet coming into the side at fullback.
Marcos Kremer shifts from lock to blindside flank, Tomas Lezana moves from the side of the scrum to No 8 in place of Javier Ortega Desio, and Tomas Lavanini comes in to the second row. Elsewhere, prop Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro returns on the loosehead side ahead of Mayco Vivas.
Santiago Carreras takes Tuculet’s spot on the bench.
Jaguares – 15 Joaquín Tuculet, 14 Matias Moroni, 13 Matias Orlando, 12 Jeronimo De La Fuente (c), 11 Emiliano Boffelli, 10 Domingo Miotti, 9 Tomas Cubelli, 8 Tomas Lezana, 7 Marcos Kremer, 6 Pablo Matera, 5 Tomás Lavanini, 4 Guido Petti, 3 Santiago Medrano, 2 Julian Montoya, 1 Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro.
