Super Sharks go top after taming Jaguares

Nick Said

South Africa's Sharks showed their teeth as they continued an impressive start to the Super Rugby season and moved to the top of the overall table by taming the Jaguares with a 33-19 victory at King's Park on Saturday.

The Durban-based side returned from their tour of Australasia this week but showed no ill-effects of the travel as tries from lock Hyron Andrews, number eight Sikhumbuzo Notshe, centre Andre Esterhuizen and prop Kerron van Vuuren saw off the Argentine side to confirm their status as South Africa's most likely challengers for the title.

The Sharks have 20 points from their six matches, two more than the New Zealand duo of Waikato Chiefs and Canterbury Crusaders, and Australia's ACT Brumbies, though those sides have all played a game fewer.
