Jaguares Top Africa Super Rugby Conference

Los Jaguares top the Africa Super Rugby conference. After four rounds the Argentine franchise has 14 competition points. This is the same total as that of the Lions, the side that Los Jaguares defeated in round 3.

Los Jaguares and the Lions are grouped together in the Africa 2 conference. The Sharks occupy third position on 13 points while the Southern Kings are bottom of the table on five points.

Compared to the three other conferences Africa 2 is proving to be one of the most competitive. In Africa 1 the Sunwolves are winless after four matches while in the Australian conference the Rebels are 0-3. In the New Zealand conference the Blues and Highlanders are off the pace.
