Plenty of running. The Jaguares have not died wondering in their first season of Super Rugby, often at their own detriment. First five Nicholas Sanchez is a man who simply can’t resist the chance to move the ball to space regardless of where his side is on the park. The result has been plenty of high risk rugby, but not a lot of tries. What the Jaguares have in spirit, they lack in polish. They are third in the competition when it comes to defenders beaten, but last equal when it comes to tries scored and first when it comes to yellow cards. The risk for the Hurricanes is the passes finally start to stick. The risk for the Jaguares is they don’t because the Hurricanes are the best in the business when it comes to punishing turnover ball.
