13 Jaguares in Argentina team for All Blacks




Argentina head coach Mario Ledesma has named a Pumas team with 13 players who featured in the Jaguares v Crusaders Super rugby final earlier this month.

Ledesma has added Stade Francais flyhalf Nicolas Sanchez and Saracens prop Juan Figallo in his team to play the All Blacks in Buenos Aires this weekend.

While the All Blacks have named more of an experimental team as eight of Super rugby’s best from the Crusaders have been rested and there are five new caps in the side Ledesma has chosen to throw his best players straight in.

The Jaguares won 11 of their last 13 Super Rugby matches this year but in the Rugby Championship, they have never enjoyed such success and have finished in last place in six of their seven tournaments.
