Jaguares vs Bulls Rd.15 Super Rugby Preview




The ninth and final Super Rugby match in Round 15 in in Buenos Aires where the Jaguares will host the South Africa’s Bulls.

The Bulls are the last South African side to get to play the Jaguares but they will have the advantage of knowing what to expect.

The Jaguares 16th place overall are out of contention for the play offs but the Bulls are still well in contention.

The Bulls are in 10th place overall but they are just four points behind the Stormers who are third due to them being on top of Africa 1 Conference.

For this match Bulls head coach Nollis Marais has named Lappies Labuschagne as captain due to Adriaan Strauss being rested.

Jesse Kriel and Burger Odendaal have been named in in the midfield and Renaldo Bothma on the bench, with the flanker looking for a first appearance in the Bulls jersey.

The Jaguares were beaten by the Southern Kings in their last meeting but by the end of the match they were playing with three players less than the Kings.

Nahuel Chaparro Tetaz comes in to the front row which pushes Santiago García Botta down to the replacements bench.

Pablo Matera also comes into the starting line up replacing Tomás Lezana.

In the backs Manuel Montero starts on the wing for Boffelli Cordero while Jerome de la Fuente and Matías Moroni are the centres and Santiago Cordero starts on the other wing for Matias Orlando. Joaquín Tuculet retains his place at fullback.

The Bookies have given the Jaguares a 2 point start for this Match – with an offer of up to $200 in Bonus bets. The Jaguares discipline cost them dearly in their last outing and was the reason for the loss. The Bulls this week should have too much experience and power for the South Americans.
