Jaguares have named former Argentina international Gonzalo Quesada as the new head coach of the Super Rugby side.

The decision follows after Mario Ledesma's departure as he took in charge of the Argentina national side after a successful stint with Jaguares that saw them reach the quarter-final in 2018 season.

Quesada has played 38 Tests for Argentina between 1996 and 2003 and announced retirement as a player in 2008. Since then, he has worked as an assistant coach of France before becoming the head coach of Racing 92 and Stade Francais.

“It was time to go back to my country and bring Argentine rugby all my experience,” Quesada said.

“My biggest challenge is to have more players, improve the preparation and contribute to Argentine rugby as it continues to grow.

"If we only think of the results we are going to make a mistake. We want this process to move forward.”
