Jaguares beat Waratahs in Sydney




The Waratahs have played the Jaguares twice in Super Rugby since 2017 and the Waratahs have yet to beat the Jaguares.

In the two matches between these sides, one match was played in Sydney and the other was played in Buenos Aires.

  • This will be just the third Super Rugby fixture between these sides, the Jaguares have won the first two matches including the inaugural clash in Sydney (40-27).
  • Each of the NSW Waratahs’ last nine Super Rugby games has been decided by a single-digit margin on the day; however, the Waratahs have managed just three wins in that time (L6).
  • The Jaguares have won five of their last six Super Rugby matches (L1); though, just one of those six games was decided by a margin of greater than eight points.
  • The Jaguares boast a points differential of +59 in the final quarter of games this Super Rugby season, the second highest of any team in the competition.
  • Bernard Foley has slotted 41 kicks at goal this Super Rugby campaign – the second most of any player in the competition – at an accuracy of 77%.

4.00: Michael Hooper tries to get around Emiliano Boffelli, does not. The Tahs go wide, but Bernard Foley’s pass doesn’t find his man. NSW win the loose ball, and they continue to attack inside the opposition’s half.

5.00: The 13-phase attack ends when the visitors win the turnover and go wide. Boffelli boots forward, the Tahs gather and clear. Lineout to the tourists.

7.00: Both sides are playing for territory, using up-and-unders to try and win back possession inside the other team’s half. Foley ends the duels by a cross-kick to the Jaguares’ 22.

13.00: The Jaguares have a throw where the Sydney side should have been.

14.00: Boffelli drops Foley’s highball, setting off an NSW attack, however, they botch the attack with a knock-on, but will come back for the original knock on by the Pumas’ fullback.

15.00: Short-arm penalty for early engagement by the Tahs front row. NSW has made 45 tackles to the Jaguares’ 20; it’s been good defending from both sides, too. Not too many missed tackles.

18.00: Lachlan Swinton concedes a penalty for not rolling away. Jaguares clear to halfway.

19.00: It’s a bit messy at the minute. Tom Robertson knocks on at a messy ruck. The Tahs are contesting the lineouts and causing the opposition’s forwards problems, especially at the front of the set-piece.

22.00: The Jaguares back three are dangerous with ball in their hands, they all are good kicking out of hand, too. They are winning the battle of the boot against their counterparts.

29.00: It’s relentless from the South Americans. They march their way back into the Aussie’s 22 but lose the ball in contact to offer the opponents a reprieve. The ball is a bit slippery because of dew.

30.00: The Jaguares have had 60% possession and 73% territory; they’ve made their hosts make 91 tackles, now.

32.00: Foley turns around the Jaguares with a decent kick to their 22. Daryl Gibson’s men need to get their hands on the ball because this defensive effort will take its toll in the second half.
