TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: Jaguares coach Raúl Pérez has made two changes to the starting XV that will face Melbourne Rebels at the AAMI Park on Friday.

In the loose forwards, Rodrigo Baez comes in for Juan Manuel Leguizamón at flank. Leguizamón sustained a concussion during the side's historic 40-27 win against the Waratahs at the weekend.

The other modification to the starting XV is in the middle.  Bautista Ezcurra will don the number 12 jersey in place of Jerónimo De la Fuente.

While on the bench, the second row Juan Cruz Guillemain could make his debut if he gets an opportunity to take to the field.

The Argentinian franchise head into this contest full of confidence and would want to end the season on a high note by claiming one more Aussie scalp down under.

The Jaguares occupy the third spot in the Africa 2 conference with six wins from 14 matches.

Jaguares: 15 Joaquin Tuculet, 14 Matias Moroni, 13 Matias Orlando, 12 Bautista Ezcurra, 11 Emiliano Boffelli, 10 Nicolas Sanchez, 9 Martin Landajo, 8 Leonardo Senatore, 7 Rodrigo Baez, 6 Pablo Matera, 5 Benjamin Macome, 4 Guido Petti, 3 Enrique Pieretto, 2 Austin Creevy (captain), 1 Nahuel Tetaz.
Replacements: 16 Juluan Montoya, 17 Ramiro Herrera, 18 Lucas Noguera, 19 Ignacio Larrague, 20 Juan Cruz Guillemain, 21 Gonzalo Bertranou, 22 Juan Martin Hernandez, 23 Santiago Cordero.
