    Landers are missing 3-4 key players:

    Hemepo who is a dynamic Lock/Flanker

    Waisake Naholo

    Ben Smith - he can play a bit........

    AND a backup #10 as both Banks and B Gatland are both injured

    This is a bonus game for Jaguares Landers are favourites by 12.5 pts

    Good to see Jags use a FOURTH Lock for once

    Moreso as Lavannini is moving to England which is a GOOD thing btw

    More Pumas in Europe More exposure to better coaching

    More chancres for Young players to develop

    The above link is also another avenue for Young Pumas to play against seasoned Afrikaans players and other SA based talents

    Lets consider it Pampas Mark II

    yep its gonna be more even then, but still landers are favorites. the thing with nz teams imo is that the new players allways do good. it happend over and over with los pumas vs all blacks remember this time we where beating nz in the fist havf then the replacement scrum halve came in Piri wepu. he was unknown for us.. he totally turned the game nz way.
    so im pretty sure landers reserves are pretty good even better than the starters an of couse the extra enthusiasm

    I see your POV but I disagree on this part:

    Super Rugby rugby is a different beast from International Rugby

    Most Kiwi Super Rugby will be playing club rugby in Mitre 10 and nowhere close to being All Blacks

    Out of the 23 Highlanders playing ONLY Aaron Smith will be playing for All Black is RWC 2019 in Japan

    Coltman Squire J Iaone & L Whitelock have a small chance of playing as well

    Far too often people mystify NZ players

    All BLACKS are elite but in Super Rugby there is there Crusaders and everyone else in NZ

    The other 4 teams are good sides but very beatable

    Injured atm

    He won't play for the Highlander again this season

    Injured his hamstring last week and will be out 6-8 weeks

    Plus after the RWC 2019 he'll be off to Pau in French Top 14

    P.S. I'm enjoying Crusaders batter Bulls and in the process nullify their +49 points differential

    I respect the Jaguares very much, but I am a Highlanders fan and hope they get the win at home.

    Highlanders score, but miss what should have been an easy conversion. It's 7-5 Jaguares at 23:30.

    Highlanders win 32-27 in a very close, hard fought and competitive match. I kept score here in case some of you out there didn't have access to the game on TV, radio or a streaming service. Good night to all. :)

    Better than I expected what Jags did.
    The good thing is that they add a bonus point.
