Jaguares coach Mario Ledesma has opted to rest several first-choice players for Saturday’s match against the Sharks at Kings Park.
The Argentinians have already qualified for the quarter-finals and will host one next weekend if they win in Durban and the Lions lose to the Bulls at Ellis Park. Whatever happens, though, they face another long flight.
Among the backs, Ramiro Moyano moves from the wing to fullback, with Emiliano Boffelli dropping to the bench and Sebastian Cancelliere wearing the No 11 jersey.
Joaquín Díaz Bonilla and Martin Landajo will start at flyhalf and scrumhalf respectively, with Nicolás Sánchez and Gonzalo Bertranou among the substitutes. Bautista Ezcurra comes into the midfield.
In the pack, Juan Manuel Leguizamón will start at No 8 and Marcos Kremer will play flank, while Tomas Lavanini will partner Matias Alemanno in the second row.
Santiago Medrano, Julian Montoya and Javier Diaz form a new front row.
