Jaguares name strong team

The Jaguares have named 13 Argentina World Cup players for their opening Super Rugby match.

The Argentinian side begin their Super Rugby campaign against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein tomorrow.

Coach Raul Perez says that they have looked at their pre-season matches and made changes to parts of their game.

The team is captained by hooker Agustin Creevy.
