The Brumbies have stuck with the same 23 that beat the Kings, as they brace for a fiery Jaguares side.

Coach Stephen Larkham has backed the combinations who broke their four-game losing streak in Port Elizabeth to stand up to the Jaguares.

A win is critical for the Brumbies, who sit on top of the Australian conference by just four points, with the Waratahs in second.

Tom Banks has retained his spot at fullback, with Aidan Toua on the wing, while Ben Alexander will become the equal most-capped Brumbies player when he runs out for his 142nd Super Rugby game.

The Brumbies take on the Jaguares in Buenos Aires, kicking off at 7:40am AEST on Sunday, LIVE on FOX SPORTS.
