Jaguares star Cordero in car crash




Argentina and Jaguares winger Santiago Cordero will miss the start of the Jaguares tour of New Zealand and Japan after being in a car crash.

Cordero was driving home after the Jagures 8-13 loss to the Stormers in Buenos Aires on Saturday in wet conditions when the car accident happened.

The winger only suffered some minor cuts and bruises in the accident and nothing too serious.

“I was on my way back home, it was raining a bit and suddenly I lost control of the car,” Cordero was quoted as saying by the Argentine Rugby Union on Sunday.

“Luckily it was just a fright and I’m ok,” said Cordero.

The Pumas winger was one of Argentinas star players at the Rugby World Cup.

Cordero was to fly with the Jaguares from Buenos Aires to Auckland on Sunday but will now only fly in two weeks time and has been replaced by Ramiro Moyano.

The Jaguares play the Blues in Auckland on Saturday and then the Hurricanes and Crusaders on the following two weekends before taking on the Sunwolves in Tokyo on April 23..

The Jaguares have decided to rest captain Agustin Creevy, fullback Joaquin Tuculet, back Juan Martin Hernandez and back-row Juan Manuel Leguizamon for the first two tour matches.
