    Match Report – Vodacom Bulls v Jaguares



    The Jaguares added to the Bulls misery when they beat them 39-24 on Saturday at Loftus.

    It has left the Bulls with four losses in a row so far and at the bottom of the log.

    We saw plenty of tries but also very poor defending from both sides. The Jaguares outscored the Bulls with six tries to three and earned their bonus point win.

    With the first try in the fifth minute the Jaguares showed their attend to run the ball and score tries. Carreras made a great linebreak to send Boffelli over for the try.

    The Bulls hit back immediately with Van Staden at the end off a set move from the lineout.

    It was almost one for you and one for me with the Bulls getting their second try through Gelant which made the score 14-10 for the Bulls.

    The Jaguares got their second try through Petti and a third by Moroni to take the lead for the visitors to 24-14.

    The Bulls started well in the second half getting a try when Specman made a brilliant break which saw Hendrick getting over. This reduced the lead to 24-21.

    The the problems started for the Bulls when Kotze was send off to the bin for a high tackle. From a scrum the Jaguares got another when Bonilla got a cross-kick to Boffelli to go over in the corner.

    The Jaguares was also reduced to 14 players but the Bulls could not take advantage off the extra man.

    The Jaguares had the last say when Socino got on the scoresheet for a well earned bonus point win in Pretoria.
