Jaguares go all out for SA tour
The Jaguares will play the Stormers in Cape Town this coming Saturday before taking on the Lions in Johannesburg a week later.
They will then make the short trip to Bloemfontein to play their first Super Rugby match against the Cheetahs on Friday, February 26.
Nicolás Sánchez, Santiago Cordero, Agustín Creevy, Juan Manuel Leguizamón, Guido Petti and Pablo Matera are just some of Argentina's World Cup stars who are part of the Jaguares 34-man squad that will travel to South Arica.
"It is great challenge that lies ahead," said Perez. "The two friendlies against Stormers and Lions will be a true test. We will be looking to give all 34 players a chance against the Stormers and Lions before that match against the Cheetahs."
The Jaguares will also be boosted by the signing of fullback/wing Lucas González Amorosino, who completed is three-month spell with Irish giants Munster.
The player signed a contract with the Argentina Rugby Union for the 2016 and 2017 seasons. The 30-year-old will start training in mid-February.
Meanwhile, the Argentine team unveiled their home and away jerseys for this year's tournament. One will have an all-black look to it while the other is bright orange in colour.
