Jaguares edge Lions in thriller




The Jaguares halted a late Lions comeback to defeat the South Africans 49-35 at Estadio José Amalfitani, Buenos Aires.

Los Jaguares ran in six tries to five in an 84-point thriller in South America with Emiliano Boffelli and Javier Ortega Desio both grabbing a brace.

The South African Rugby Player of the Year also scored two, but it was not enough as the Argentines downed last year’s runners-up.

The loss broke the Lions’ seven-game unbeaten away record.
