Creevy, who takes over the captaincy from scrumhalf Martín Landajo, replaces Julián Montoya in the No.2 jersey.

Jaguares coach of Jaguares, Raúl Pérez made three other changes to the team that lost (30-31) to the Kings last week.

In the front row Enrique Pieretto comes in at tighthead prop, with Nahuel Tetaz moving to loosehead prop in place of the injured Lucas Noguera.

In the second row Benjamin Macome comes in for Matías Alemanno – with the lock also injured in last Friday's match against Kings.
