Highlights from Super Rugby week 14 matches: REBELS 17 BULLS 32

Handre Pollard put the announcement of his move to Montpellier at the end of the Super Rugby season behind him to orchestrate the Bulls' victory over the Rebels on Friday. Pollard scored a try and kicked 12 points while Cornal Hendricks, Burger Odendaal and Rosko Speckman also crossed for the visitors, who moved to joint top of the South African conference with 32 points.

The Jaguares are also on 32 points after they beat the Wellington Hurricanes 28-20 earlier. Marika Koroibete (two) and Will Genia scored tries for the home side, who had been hoping to overtake the ACT Brumbies (29) at the top of the Australian conference. They remained on 28 points.

The Jaguares recorded their first ever win over the Hurricanes to move to the top of the South African conference, handing their hosts a first home defeat by foreign opposition since 2015. Agustin Creevy and Jeronomio De La Fuente crossed and the Argentines were awarded a penalty try when Jordie Barrett was sinbinned for a professional foul to give the visitors a 21-8 halftime lead.

Julian Montoya grabbed a fourth try after the break to ensure a victory that gave the Jaguares 32 points and moved them above the resting Sharks (29). The Bulls (28) play the Rebels in Melbourne later on Friday. Vaea Fifita, Ngani Laumape and Kane Leaupepe scored tries for the home side, who remained second in the New Zealand conference on 40 points but were outplayed by a Jaguares team that constantly harried them and forced errors.
