- The Jaguares and Brumbies have met just twice previously in Super Rugby, winning one game apiece, the away side on the day winning each encounter.
- The Jaguares have won five of their last six games against Australian opposition (L1), however three of their five victories in that spell have come by just five points or fewer.
- The Brumbies have lost three games this season in which they’ve led at halftime, no other side has suffered as many defeats in that fashion (Sunwolves also 3).
- The Brumbies have conceded just 13.4 turnovers per game this season, fewer than any other side, while they’ve also won the most turnovers on average (8.6).
- The Brumbies’ James Slipper has made 42/42 tackles this year, the joint most of any player yet to miss one (Stormers’ JD Schickerling also 42/42), while Jaguares prop Mayco Vivas boasts the best success rate of any player to attempt more tackles than Slipper (98% – 43/44).
The Jaguares have played the Brumbies just two times in Super rugby since 2017 when they first met and the Jaguares have won 1 matches and lost 1 match.
In the two meetings between these teams whoever was playing at home finished the match as the losing team.
Therefore in matches between these sides the home team has never won which goes strongly against regular Super rugby trends. Home advantage has meant nothing in these matches.
The last time the Jaguares hosted the Brumbies in Buenos Aires they lost: Jaguares 15 Brumbies 39.
The Jaguares had a bye last week while the Brumbies beat the Stormers in Cape Town.
Average score: Jaguares 20 Brumbies 30
