Preview – Jaguares v Vodacom Bulls


It is a massive week for Pote Human and his Bulls side as they travel to Argentina to face the Jaguares.

After the great start they had against the DHL Stormers last week, people want to see see if that was just a fluke or are the Bulls back to compete in Super Rugby.

They were exceptional at Loftus and this week they could not asked for a better test than playing in Argentina against the Jaguares side.

Human will expect the same kind of clinical performance from his side with Pollard controlling the game at ten.

Lineouts will be crucial and this is something the Jaguares are good at as well. With the lineouts comes the scrums and the Bulls have build a good foundation last week against the Stormers and need to take it a step further now against the Jaguares who has been struggling of late in scrums.

Big questions will be asked by the Bulls in defence and with their kicking game, but the Jaguares are a team that likes to counter attack.

History will show that the home side have won every-time these two sides meet.

The Jaguares seems to be a bit lost without their playmaker of last year Nicolás Sánchez, who has moved to France.

This is an area that the Bulls can concentrate on.

This is going to be an exciting match to watch and worth while staying up late.
