Jean-Luc du Preez is the man of the match!

05 Mar 21:07
Next week the Sharks will face Stormers at Newlands while the Jaguares have a bye. 
05 Mar 21:06


The Sharks have their second victory of the season while the Jaguares suffer their first defeat in Super Rugby.

To be fair, both teams will agree that the standard of play was fairly poor with far too many handling errors.

Sharks 19 Jaguares 15

05 Mar 21:03
78' - The Sharks are content to keep the Jaguares deep in their own half. The visitors don't seem able to put the Sharks defence under much pressure at present. 
05 Mar 21:01
76' - More excellent defence from the Sharks stops yet another Jaguares attack. The visitors do have scrum feed on halfway however. 
05 Mar 20:59
74' - Time is running out for the visitors, they are trying to run from everywhere but not making much headway. 
05 Mar 20:57
72' - Pietersen's attempt at goal drifts out to the right. 
05 Mar 20:57

71' - Excellent defence by the Sharks repels a wave of Jaguares attacks, eventually resulting in a kickable penalty to the home side.

Pietersen lines up a shot from about 45m out and to the left of the uprights. 

05 Mar 20:53

68' - PENALTY slotted by Pietersen!

The pivot makes no mistake and extends the home sides lead.

Sharks 19 Jaguares 15 

05 Mar 20:52
67' - Scrum penalty to the Sharks. This is right in front and Pietersen will have a shot at goal. 
05 Mar 20:49
64' - Again poor handling breaks up a promising Sharks attack. They will want to tighten up in the final 15 minutes here. 
05 Mar 20:45
61' - Now the Jaguares surge upfield with some brilliant interplay but they too turn the ball over with an untimely knock-on. 
05 Mar 20:44
60' - Another promising Sharks attack comes to an end with yet another turnover allowing the Jaguares to clear upfield. 
05 Mar 20:42

59' - Shark substitution

Van der Walt replaces Daniel du Preez at No. 8. 

Claassens replaces Reinach

05 Mar 20:38

54' - Coetzee breaks way for the Sharks but he is brought to ground by Cordero.

The Jaguares win a penalty as Coetzee does not release the ball. 

05 Mar 20:36

54' - Another brilliant Sharks counter-attack started by Pietersen sees a number of players handling with Ndungane prominent.

Unfortunately for the home side, their handling again lets them down and they turn over possession. 

05 Mar 20:35

52' - Jaguares substitution

Isa replaces Senatore at No. 8. 

05 Mar 20:34

52' - Sharks substitution

Andrews replaces Lewies at lock. 

05 Mar 20:33

52' - PENALTY slotted by Pietersen.

Sharks 16 Jaguares 15

05 Mar 20:32
51' - Pietersen will have a shot at goal for the home side. 
05 Mar 20:32
50' - Sharks onto the attack as the Jaguares cannot win their own lineout. Le Roux get close and the Sharks have a penalty with the Jaguares getting another warning. 
05 Mar 20:31

49' - Penalty to the Jaguares as the Sharks are penalised at their on their own lineout throw. 

05 Mar 20:30
48' - Another scrum penalty against the visitors allows Pietersen to set up a lineout in the Jaguares 22m area. This is the first real attack of the second half for the Sharks. 
05 Mar 20:27
45' - The Jaguares are making all the running so far in this half. That try before half-time has galvanized the visitors. 
05 Mar 20:25

44' - Sharks substitution

Oosthuizen is replaced by Adriaanse at tighthead prop. 

05 Mar 20:24

42' - A promising Jaguares attack comes to nothing as the Sharks turn the ball over. 

Le Roux kicks downfield but it is way too far and the Cordero can dot down.

Baez and Matera return from their time in the bin and the visitors are back to 15 men. 

05 Mar 20:21
41' - The Sharks control the kick-off easily allowing Reinach to clear to the half-way line. 
05 Mar 20:20
40' - Sanchez gets the second half underway. The Jaguares still are playing with 13 men. 
05 Mar 20:18

The Jaguares will have to watch their discipline. They have four yellow cards in two matches so far this season.

The Sharks will question whether they should have taken more of the 3 points on offer, even though their maul is very impressive. 

05 Mar 20:07


A ding-dong battle at Kingspark.

The visitors have the lead for the moment. 

Sharks 13 Jaguares 15

05 Mar 20:05

37' - TRY to the Jaguares!

A promising Sharks attack results in a turnover after Daniel du Preez loses the ball forward.

The Jaguares kick ahead and the pacy fullback Cordero beats the Sharks defenders to the ball, collects and falls over the line. 

Sanchez cannot cannot convert. 

Sharks 13 Jaguares 15

05 Mar 20:01
35' - The Jaguares do well to win possession and then a penalty as the Sharks are ruled offside. 
05 Mar 20:00

33' - The Sharks set up a lineout but can't take advantage as the knock-on while trying to maul over the line.

The Jaguares have a defensive scrum on their line but with only six forwards!

05 Mar 19:58

32' - YELLOW CARD for the Jaguares

Flank Matera will spend 10 minutes in the bin for a cynical foul.

05 Mar 19:57

32' - The Sharks opt to take a lineout which the Jaguares defend this time. Another penalty to the home side as the visitors go offside. 

Reinach taps and goes but is caught by a Jaguares player that is miles offside. 

Jaco Peyper wants the players number, this could be another card. 

05 Mar 19:55

31' - YELLOW CARD for the Jaguares

Baez will spend 10 minutes in the bin for collapsing a Sharks maul. 

05 Mar 19:51

The Sharks regain the lead in Durban. 

Sharks 13 Jaguares 10

05 Mar 19:50

26' - It's the Sharks that win a penalty as the scrum collapses.

This time, Pietersen will kick at goal. 

05 Mar 19:48

24' - This time the Jaguares defence holds with the Sharks eventually knocking on.

The visitors have a defensive scrum feed right under their posts. 

05 Mar 19:47

23' - Another very impressive driving maul from the Sharks sees the home side win a penalty. 

The Jaguares also get an official warning for illegal play to bring the maul down.

Pietersen sets up a lineout around 8m from the Jaguares line. 

05 Mar 19:43

19' - Excellent use of space out wide as the Jaguares defence rush up on the Sharks backline.

Slick hands, however work some space, first for Le Roux and then Ndungane who loses the ball forward as he attempts a pass inside.

The Jaguares receive a penalty from the resulting scrum and can clear downfield, relieving some pressure. 

05 Mar 19:40

17' - The Sharks have the Jaguares under more pressure with another impressive rolling maul which the Argentinian side eventually bring to ground

Joe Pietersen opts for a cross-kick to JP Pietersen but it's just slightly too high for the winger. 

05 Mar 19:37

15' - Penalty slotted by Sanchez

No problems for the Jaguares pivot as he slots that straight through the middle.  

Sharks 10 Jaguares 10 

05 Mar 19:36
14' - Now the visitors have a penalty as a Sharks player has his hands in a ruck. Sanchez will have a shot at goal. 
05 Mar 19:35
13' - Scrappy play from both sides. The Jaguares will have a scrum feed after a Sharks knock-on.
