Jaguares beat Sharks in Buenos Aires




The Jaguares host the Sharks in the third Super Rugby match on Friday and they will be looking for their sixth straight win.

The Jaguares and Sharks have played each other four times in Super rugby and the Sharks have won all four matches.

Two matches were played in Buenos Aires and two in Durban.

  • The Sharks have won all of their previous four games against the Jaguares, each by a margin of no greater than eight points.
  • The Jaguares have won their last five games on the bounce, of which three came after trailing at the half-time interval.
  • The Sharks have lost six of their last seven games away from home; however, they have managed to pick up a losing bonus point in five of those six defeats.
  • The Jaguares have kicked 10 penalty goals within the opening quarter of games this season, more than any other team in the competition.
  • Lwazi Mvovo made a round-high 115 metres in Round 14, his most in a single game since Round 13, 2017 (152m).
