- This will be just the third meeting between the Jaguares and Sunwolves in Super Rugby, with each of the previous two games between them won by the home side on the day (one win apiece).
- The Jaguares have won eight of their last nine Super Rugby games, including their last four on the bounce; only once in their history in the competition have they won more in succession (7 wins from April to June in 2018).
- The Sunwolves have won only two of their previous 30 games away from home in Super Rugby (L28); however, both of those wins have come in the 2019 campaign.
- Only the Crusaders (8.6) have conceded fewer clean breaks per game than the Jaguares (8.7) thus far in Super Rugby 2019.
- Semisi Masirewa (Sunwolves) has made an average gain of 8.7m per carry this Super Rugby campaign, the most of any player to have made at least 100 carries.
The Jaguares have played the Sunwolves twice in Super rugby since 2016 and the Jaguares have won one match and lost one.
That gives the Jaguares a record of winning 50% of their matches against the Sunwolves regardless of venue.
This weekend the match will be played in Buenos Aires which is home for the Jaguares and the venue where the Jaguares beat the Sunwolves.
The last time these teams met was in 2017 and the Jaguares won.
