Ledesma wary of great expectations

After wins over the Rebels and Brumbies, the Argentinean franchise recorded their first Kiwi scalp – the Blues, before wrapping up their tour with that win over the Chiefs.

"Well, now it's going to be hard not to talk about that, we are on the road to the play-offs if we keep winning," said the former Pumas prop.

"But I don't think we are at that point, we just need to concentrate on our job and keep working hard, and don't lose that focus. 

"If not we'll get a little bit dizzy, so we'll just keep the boys grounded."

However, Ledesma admitted he was proud of his players' efforts. 

"We'd never beaten a Kiwi side, and now we've beaten two on the road (Chiefs and Blues). 

"So really proud of the work they've put in since the beginning of the season, and I hope everybody in Argentina is proud too."

The Jaguares enjoy a bye in Round 13 ahead of a run of two home games against South African (Bulls and Sharks) opposition before the June international window.
