Los Jaguares vs Uruguay - Preview

Argentina A, known more commonly as Los Jaguares are to play against South America´s number two ranked side, Uruguay at the San Isidro Club in Northern Buenos Aires on Wedensday. The international friendly serves as preperation for both sides with Uruguay to play matches vs Spain and Portugal in Europe latter this month. For the Argentine players it is a great opportunity to press for selection for Los Pampas XV in the 2012 Vodacom Cup. A large number of Los Jaguares players have gone on to higher honours and have played for Argentina vs elite opposition as well as earning professional contracts in Europe. World Cup players Lucas González Amorosino, Gonzalo Camacho, Agustín Creevy, Julio Farias, Genaro Fessia,  Martín Rodríguez Gurruchaga, Nicolás Sánchez, Leonardo Senatore have all played for Los Jaguares in recent years. Los Jaguares are to be captained by Mariano Galarza who also went to Rugby World Cup 2011 and played half a season in Ireland for Leinster in 2010.

The match is to kickoff on Wednesday, which is the Day of the Dead, at 2:00pm local time. Los Jaguares´ are made up of Argentine based players but not all players are avaliable for selection due to the URBA Top 14 Final and also the interior final. Coach Daniel Hourcade has said the objective is to improve the players. Los Jaguares should be too strong and win the match by 40 or more points.
