- Southern Kings scored three late tries when Jaguares were reduced to 12 men and won an error-strewn Super Rugby battle of strugglers 29-22 in Port Elizabeth. The Argentine visitors had lock Tomas Lavanini and tighthead prop Ramiro Herrera red carded during the first half for shoulder charges to the heads of South African opponents. Having gallantly turned a 6-3 half-time lead into a 22-10 advantage, Jaguares were dealt a further blow 10 minutes from time when flanker Tomas Lezana was yellow carded for collapsing a maul. The result had no impact on the Africa 2 conference standings with Jaguares staying third and Kings fourth, and neither team has any chance of making the play-offs.
