Starting well has become a thing of habit for the Stormers, having won their season opener in six of the last eight Super Rugby campaigns, including each of the last three.
The Cape side have won the two previous meetings between the sides, both by less than a margin of eight points with the Jaguares claiming bonus points on both ocassions.
The men from Buenos Aires have lost their last four games in South Africa, though they’ve picked up a losing bonus point in three of those defeats.
And they will need to improve their disciplinary record as they were the most penalised team in the competition last season, conceding an average of 11.5 penalties per game.
Ahead of the game, Stormers coach Robbie Fleck said that his team is looking forward to getting the new season started at Newlands.
“The squad has put in a lot of hard work in preparation for this game, so hopefully we will see that pay off on Saturday.
“It is always great to start the season in front of our loyal fans at Newlands, so it should be another special occasion,” he said.
Meanwhile, new Jaguares coach Mario Ledesma admits that starting with a trip to South Africa is a difficult challenge but one his side are relishing.
“The biggest challenge will be to adapt quickly to the Super Rugby game rhythm, taking into account the height and the trip. Starting in South Africa is not the easiest, but it is a challenge,” Ledesma said.
Commenting on how the pre-season went, the 44-year-old 84-Test capped former hooker said: “I found a group that immediately began to work very hard. The feedback from the boys is that they had never experienced such an intense pre-season, that’s why our joy is to see them work that way.
“Experienced people share a lot with the new ones. Always the most experienced share and accompany the newest, and is one of the values of rugby that we pride ourselves and that is fulfilled here.”
