They are cantering away with ease on the overall log, leaving a clustered bunch of contenders fighting for the other play-off spot.
It was an absolute rout in Brakpan, where the chart-topping Jaguares XV destroyed the Valke 122-19. The Potchefstroom-based side smashed their way over the Bosman Stadium tryline 18 times as they totally dominated against the home side, who fielded a team of novices at this level.
The visitors held a 68-0 lead at the break and continued to stamp their authority in the second half, with outside centre and Argentina sevens player, Agustin Segura, bagging four tries and flyhalf Domingo Miotti kicking sixteen conversions. He also scored a try for a personal tally of 37 points.
The Down Touch Griffons, Valke, EP Elephants, Leopards and Boland are all chasing the second spot on the log.
The Leopards also continued to crawl up the log with a solid 33-24 win over Boland at Olën Park in Potchefstroom. They scored their third win in the competition and could still force their way into the play-offs pending other results.
