.The Bulls have ‘revenge’ on their mind ahead of their encounter with the South American franchise.

The Jaguares recorded a comfortable 27-12 win over the Bulls in Buenos Aires in February.

However, that has not stopped Bulls coach Pote Human resting a number of key players – including Springbok flyhalf Handre Pollard and Bok centre Jesse Kriel.

Then there is also the controversial four-week ban slapped on Bok hooker Schalk Brits.

Despite this Bulls skipper Duane Vermeulen is adamant they will be able to make amends for their early-season mishap.

Prediction: All five previous Super Rugby games between the Bulls and Jaguares have been won by the home side on the day, victory here for the Bulls would tie up the head to head record with three wins apiece. The Bulls lost their last home game in Super Rugby against the Chiefs, they’ve not lost back to back home games though since 2017. The Jaguares have lost their last five away games on the bounce in Super Rugby, conceding 40+ points on three occasions in that span; they had won four on the bounce away from home prior to that run. The Bulls have conceded just one try within the opening 20 quarter of a game this Super Rugby season, fewer than any other team in the competition. Bulls back row forward Duane Vermeulen has 11 turnovers to his name this season, two more than any other player in Super Rugby, six of those have been jackals.P
