Well my idea of an upset went out the door in the early hours of Saturday morning when the Jaguares came back to beat the Chiefs 21-16.
This means the Jaguares will be playing in the semi-finals for the first time since they join the competition.
They will now wait to see who they will face between the Brumbies and the Sharks next week at home.
The home side started well with a try by Matera and a penalty by Joaquin Diaz Bonilla’s to give them an early 8-0 lead.
This fired up the Chiefs who came back with a try from Boshier and two penalties from Debreczeni and one from McKenzie which gave them the lead.
But as we have seen all season the Jaguares just speedup the game to get Moroni over for a try and a few penalties by Bonilla to secure a much impressive win.
The Jaguares will be worried with the mistakes they made in the middle part of the match and will have to fix this going forward.
They had to work hard to get back into the match and it will just get more difficult going forward.
There handling was not on their normal high standard but the fight they showed against a pretty good and inform Chiefs side have send a message out that they are capable to challenge for that trophy.
The Chiefs will be upset with themselves because they were in full control of the match and the scoreboard but let the home side back into the match.
When the Jaguares made the game faster they quickly took control of the match and were just too good for the Chiefs.
At the end it was a well deserved win for the home side who keep marching on in the competition.
