The Sunwolves won their first ever Super Rugby game when they beat the Jaguares 36-28 on Saturday. It was an entertaining game and while the Japanese side deserved their win, one player that stood out was Argentina Jaguares’ Emiliano Boffelli, who was outstanding in the air.
On Friday we saw Sharks fullback Willie le Roux land on his neck after getting up high and being flipped, but Boffelli showed absolutely no fear as he challenged for high balls, and more often than not won them. He also scored a nicely taken try, great reward for his hard work.
At just 21-years-old, he is certainly one to look out for in the future.
