The 2020 Super Rugby action will continue this weekend with Bulls taking on Blues on February 22.

South African giants Bulls are targeting their maiden win in this year’s competition after losing 13-0 to their local rivals Stormers away in their previous match.

John Dobson - Stormers coach

Meanwhile, South African side Stormers will host Argentine outfit Jaguares at the DHL Newlands Stadium on Saturday, February 22. Kick-off is at 15h15.

Stormers recorded their third win in this year’s Super Rugby when they defeated their local rivals Lions 33-22 away in their previous match.

On the other hand, Jaguares registered their second win in the competition when they defeated Australian outfit Reds 43-27 at home in their previous game.

John Dobson, the Stormers coach, expects a huge physical battle from the Jaguares which should make for Test match intensity.

“The Jaguares are a very physical side, I think they are a slightly different side to what they were last year,” Robson told the team’s official website.

“DHL Newlands is a different environment, against the Jaguares we want to go back to our traditional game with our forwards carrying nicely and hopefully creating more space for our backs.”

Sam Cane in action for Chiefs 

Lastly, New Zealand side Chiefs will take on Australian outfit Brumbies at the FMG Stadium on Saturday, February 22. Kick-off is at 08h05.

Chiefs registered their third win in this season’s Super Rugby when they defeated Japanese side Sunwolves 43-17 away in their previous game.

Their visitors, Brumbies tasted their first defeat in this year’s competition when they lost 23-22 to New Zealand Side Highlanders at home in their previous match.
