Jaguares Super Rugby head coach Raul Perez has named a team with six changes for this weekend’s Super Rugby match against the Southern Kings in their final home match at Velez Sarsfeld this season.

Perez has chosen to start Julian Montoya for the first time this season as captain Agustín Creevy has been left out of the squad.

With Creevy out of the match the Jaguares will be captained by Martin Landajo at scrumhalf.

Montoya will be partnered in the front row by props Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro and Lucas Noguera with Matías Alemanno and Guido Petti in the second row.

Pablo Matera returns to the team to replace Tomas Lezana.

In the backs Emiliano Boffelli and Matías Moroni replace Jerónimo De la Fuente and Ramiro Moyano while Bautista Ezcurra comes in to play first centre.

“It’s our last home game and it would be great if people came out to encourage us. It was a year that started very well and then the results did not come. I think things were very good in terms of the game, but we still have a lot of things to correct, “said Montoya.
