Double delight for De Jager looks back at the past weekend's Anglo-Welsh Cup matches, which involved South African players.

– Tighthead prop Jacobie Adriaanse and his Llanelli Scarlets teammates slumped to a 38-3 defeat in their dead rubber against the Sale Sharks.

– Skipper Sebastian de Chaves and his Leicester Tigers charges booked their place in the semi-finals of the competition with a 43-9 away win against the Cardiff Blues. The Tigers scored six tries to complete the rout.

– The Neath-Swansea Ospreys scored a late try to claim a 13-10 victory and send Bath crashing out of the competition. Fullback Hanno Dirksen played for the Ospreys.

– Gloucester eased to a 25-7 win over Harlequins, but both sides failed to make the play-offs of the competition. On-loan flyhalf Tim Swiel was included in the Quins match-day squad, but failed to make an appearance off the bench.

– The Newport Gwent Dragons fought back from 13-3 down to beat London Welsh 17-13. Lock Ligtoring Landman led the Dragons and Brok Harris started in the front row.

– Flank Nick de Jager scored a brace as Saracens beat defending champions, the Exeter Chiefs, 35-18 to set up a home semi-final against the Northampton Saints. Despite the loss, the Chiefs still qualify for the semis, where they'll face the Leicester Tigers.
