Jaguares' star lock fit to face Brumbies
TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: The Jaguares received a big boost ahead of their Super Rugby semifinal against the Brumbies in Buenos Aires on Friday.
Star lock Guido Petti is fit to face the Australians after he recovered from an ankle sprain.
Petti retains his spot in the second row with Tomas Lavanini.
There is just one change to the starting XV that beat the Chiefs 21-16 in last weekend’s quarterfinal.
Tomas Lezana comes into the team to take over the No.7 jersey with Marcos Kremer dropping down to the bench.
Wing Ramiro Moyano returns to the matchday squad this week and replaces Santiago Carreras on the bench.
