Herrera starts for Jaguares in Durban

Date published: April 6 2017

Ramiro Herrera will make his first start of the season for the Jaguares when they take on the Sharks in Durban this weekend.

The Argentina prop comes back into the front row, setting up a mouth-watering tussle with Tendai Mtawarira of the Sharks, as one of two changes made by Jaguares boss Raul Pérez.

The other switch sees Nicolás Sánchez return at fly-half, replacing veteran Juan Martín Hernández.

Otherwise the rest of the Jaguares 23 remains unchanged, with Agustín Creevy captaining the side from hooker and in-form backs Ramiro Moyano and Jerónimo de la Fuente both starting.

Jaguares: 15 Joaquín Tuculet, 14 Ramiro Moyano, 13 Matías Orlando, 12 Jerónimo de la Fuente, 11 Bautista Ezcurra, 10 Nicolás Sánchez, 9 Gonzalo Bertranou, 8 Leonardo Senatore, 7 Tomás Lezana, 6 Pablo Matera, 5 Matías Alemanno, 4 Marcos Kremer, 3 Ramiro Herrera, 2 Agustín Creevy (c), 1 Lucas Noguera Paz
