TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: Waratahs Coach Daryl Gibson has made one change to the starting line-up for this weekend’s Super Rugby match against the Jaguares in Buenos Aires.

Last weekend the Australian managed to produce a 24-all draw to the Sharks in Durban, a result Gibson was not too happy about.

In terms of team news, Alex Newsome replaces Andrew Kellaway on the right wing.

On the bench, hooker Tolu Latu comes in for Hugh Roach.

Norths' scrumhalf Nick Duffy replaces the injured Mitchell Short in the reserves.

While Taqele Naiyaravoro is set for his first game of the competition.

"We have selected a team that is competitive in all areas, particularly in the forwards where we are continuing to improve," Gibson said.

"This weekend’s game is about continuing the momentum that we have built up over the last two games and finishing a challenging couple of weeks on a positive note,"

Waratahs: 15 Israel Folau, 14 Alex Newsome, 13 Lalakai Foketi, 12 Kurtley Beale, 11 Curtis Rona, 10 Bernard Foley, 9 Jake Gordon, 8 Jed Holloway, 7 Michael Hooper (captain), 6 Michael Wells, 5 Tom Staniforth, 4 Ned Hanigan, 3 Paddy Ryan, 2 Damien Fitzpatrick, 1 Tom Robertson
Replacements: 16 Tolu Latu, 17 Harry Johnson-Holmes, 18 Kalivati Tawake, 19 Nick Palmer, 20 Will Miller, 21 Nick Duffy, 22 Bryce Hegarty, 23 Taqele Naiyaravoro.
