The Jaguares put together another win, this time against the Sharks on Friday when they beat them 29-13.

With the win the Jaguares have closed the gab between them and the log leading Lions.

It has been an impressive six wins in so many weeks for the Jaguares who has come out as real contenders for the title this year.

The Jaguares next goal will be against the struggling Stormers at the end of June.

With the lost the Sharks have dropped out of the top eight which means no play-off spot for the side from Durban.

The Jaguares was full value for their win as they dominated the first half that gave them the 17-7 lead at the break.

The second half the Sharks were better but mistakes just gave the Jaguares opportunity which gave them more points.

The Sharks captain Botha also received a Red Card for a shoulder charge in the ruck. This sums up the Sharks night and from that point the Sharks took themselves out of the contest.

The Jaguares sensed blood and were pushing for the bonus-point try, which came at the death as Moyano completed his hat-trick to put further pressure on the Lions top spot.

The scorers:

For Jaguares:
Tries: Moyano 3, Delguy
Cons: Sanchez 3
Pen: Sanchez

For Jaguares:
Try: Botha
Con: Du Preez
Pens: Du Preez 2
Red Card: Botha

  1. What a freakin frustrating game.

    For every good move the Sharks backline do… their handling stuffs it up.

    For every good counter their back three makes… they are useless under the high ball.

    For every good bit of play Akker shows… his LO throws are pathetic (like most the current RSA hookers).

    The list goes on from not rucking/counter-rucking/pick and driving as a unit at pace to trying to run every freakin ball from their 22.

    It must be said that the Jaguars offensive defence is excellent this year, their lines they run (when they earn the right to) are exceptional not to mention they can counter from seemingly anywhere with just a bit of space created by their pick-n-driving, which reminds me of the Sharks of old. When I mean old I mean circa-Mark Andrew/Teichman et al.
