Jaguares chop and change for Kings

Date published: May 25 2016

Jaguares head coach Raul Pérez has rung the changes to his starting line-up for Friday's clash with the Kings in Port Elizabeth.

In the back-line, Segundo Tuculet comes into the run-on side at inside centre where he replaces Matías Orlando, who moves to the right wing.  

Orlando takes over from Emiliano Boffelli, who shifts to the left wing where he is preferred to Lucas González Amorosino.

In the forwards, veteran flanker Juan Manuel Leguizamón starts on the openside flank where he replaces Tomás Lezana, who moves to the blindside flank.

Lezana comes in for Pablo Matera while Guido Petti replaces Matías Alemanno at lock and regular captain Agustin Creevy returns at hooker in the final change to the starting line-up that lost to the Lions last weekend.

Creevy returns from suspension and comes in for Julián Montoy who starts on the bench where he replaces Facundo Bosch while Alemanno will provide cover for the second row.
