TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: Jaguares head coach Raúl Pérez has made three changes to his starting XV for their clash against the Sharks in Buenos Aires on Saturday.

Amongst the forwards, there are two changes. Pablo Matera and Leonardo Senatore will replace last week's starters Tomás Lezana and Benjamin Macome, who move to the bench.

Matera will run out in the number six jumper and Senatore will don the No.8 jersey.  

The only modification in the backline sees the return Joaquín Tuculet at fullback.

Tuculet's return means that Ramiro Moyano will move to the right wing in place of Santiago Cordero.

On the bench, Juan Martín Hernández and Matías Moroni take their spots after being absent for the side's South African tour.

Jaguares: 15 Joaquín Tuculet, 14 Ramiro Moyano, 13 Matias Orlando, 12 Jerónimo De La Fuente, 11 Bautista Ezcurra, 10 Nicolás Sánchez, 9 Felipe Ezcurra, 8 Leonardo Senatore, 7 Rodrigo Baez, 6 Pablo Matera, 5 Marcos Kremer, 4 Guido Petti, 3 Ramiro Herrera, 2 Agustín Creevy (captain), 1 Lucas Noguera Paz
