INTERNATIONAL RUGBY MATCH: Jaguars Look For a Clean Sweep

Argentina A v Russia in Moscow

Venue: Slava Stadium, Moscow

Referee: James Jones (Wales)

The Jaguars won the first test last weekend 40-20. The weather looks it will be colder this weekend. The Jaguars trained in heavy snow yesterday.

Russia will look to improve on their first test performance. Russian eyes are firmly placed on the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand but they must perform well in the lead up matches. I'd expect the colder conditions to suit the Russians better.

For the Jaguars the prize is a place in the Argentine team for the 2011 Rugby World Cup.The Pumas Argentina play 3 tests in Europe this November. That team has already been selected.

Last Encounter
Just last weekend, in Moscow, where the Jaguars won 40-20.

Prediction: Jaguars by 10 points
