Jaguares extend winning streak with Bulls thrashing

Nicolas Sanchez starred as the Jaguares stayed hot in Super Rugby with a 54-24 demolition of the Bulls in Buenos Aires.

The Jaguares extended their winning streak to five games thanks to fly-half Sanchez, who contributed 24 points against the South African visitors in the Argentine capital on Saturday.

Sanchez set up tries for Bautista Delguy and Matias Orlando as the Jaguares celebrated their seventh win of the season – matching a franchise record.

Delguy crossed over twice, while young flanker Marcos Kremer, Sebastian Cancellieri and Emiliano Boffelli also scored tries for the Jaguares, who led 20-10 at half-time on home soil.

The Bulls were always trailing in the contest, despite two late tries in the first half from Nick de Jager and Andre Warner.

With their first bonus-point victory of the season, the Jaguares moved outright second in the South African conference behind the Lions.

The Bulls are fourth and five points adrift of the Jaguares after 12 games.
