TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: Jaguares coach Raúl Perez continued his policy of mass changes ahead of their Round 12 Super Rugby encounter with the Western Force on Saturday.

Perez, who made seven changes to the team that started the game against Sunwolves last week, made another seven changes this week.

At lock Matías Alemanno will take the place of Marcos Kremer, while in loose forward changes will see Benjamín Macome and Juan Manuel Leguizamon come in for , Leonardo Senatore and Rodrigo Báez.

Having come off the bench for his first Jaguares match against the Sunwolves last week, Martin Landajo will start his first Super Rugby match for the men from Argentina.

Other backline changes will see Matías Moroni and Jerónimo De la Fuente come in as the new centre pairing in place of Santiago Gonzalez Iglesias and Matias Orlando.

On the wing Bautista Ezcurra replaces Emiliano Boffelli.

The changes do not stop with the starting XV - with Julian Montoya, Tomas Lavanini and Manuel Montero returning to the matchday XV after recovering from injury.

The Jaguares have won five of their 10 matches this season - four of those victories coming at home.
