Jaguares name team for Super Rugby opener




Jaguares coach Raul Perez has named his historic first team to play in Super Rugby against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein on Friday.

The Jaguares have played two Super Rugby warm ups in South Africa over the last two weeks and lost to the Stormers but beat the Lions on Friday last week.

Thirteen of the starting fifteen players played for Argentina at Rugby World Cup 2015.

Head Coach Raul Perez says that they have looked at their pre-season matches and made changes to parts of their game.

“We made adjustments on the previous game in defence and other details.”

“We always try to evolve and with each game as we will adjust our systems, ” said the coach.

“The Cheetahs team is evolving and it is our debut in the tournament which brings anxiety. We are prepared and aware of what can happen but the players will play without pressure to seek the result”

Jaguares captain Agustin Creevy said, “We have to enjoy it and for the people who support us from our country.”
