Jaguares beat Brumbies in Buenos Aires




The Jaguares have played the Brumbies twice in Super Rugby since 2017, the Jaguares have won once and lost once.

In the two meetings between these teams whoever was playing at home finished the match as the losing team.

  • The Jaguares have won five of their last six games against Australian opposition (L1); however, three of their five victories in that spell have come by just five points or fewer.
  • The Brumbies have lost three games this season in which they’ve led at halftime; no other side has suffered as many defeats in that fashion (Sunwolves also 3).
  • The Brumbies have conceded just 13.4 turnovers per game this season, fewer than any other side, while they’ve also won the most turnovers on average (8.6).
  • James Slipper has made 42 of 42 tackles this year, the joint-most of any player yet to miss one (Stormers’ JD Schickerling also 42/42), while Jaguares prop Mayco Vivas boasts the best success rate of any player to attempt more tackles than Slipper (98% – 43/44).

Match detail

We are waiting for the kickoff.

In the meantime why not have a look at the match preview.

1.00: PEEEEP! We are underway at Jose Amalfitani Stadium, Buenos Aires. The Jaguares immediately concede a penalty. Tom Banks clears to the opposition’s 10m.

2.00: The Jaguares are penalised in the maul, allowing Banks to kick to the 22.

3.00: TRY! Sensational from the Jaguares. Henry Speight knocks on, Tomas Cubelli picks up and races away to the Brumbies’ half. He sees Sebastian Cancelliere free on the right wing. The scrumhalf kicks a wonderful grubber across the field to Cancelliere, who chases the ball and scores near the corner. 5-0

5.00: MISS! The conversion is wide. 5-0

6.00: The home team give away another penalty, this time at the ruck for hands in the ruck. Banks kicks to the corner.

7.00: TRY! Folau Fainga’a carries Domingo Miotti and Cancelliere after a well-worked lineout move. The Australians suckered the Argentinians into thinking a rolling maul was on the cards, instead, it was a wonderful front of the lineout move involving Allan Alaalatoa and the hooker. 5-all

8.00: MISS! Christian Lealiifano cannot add the touchline conversion, so it’s all square. 5-all

11.00: The Jaguares are making too many mistakes, this time a knock-on on the halfway line, giving the visitors a centre-field scrum with options either side of the set-piece.

12.00: Superb rush-defence from the home team, they force the turnover in contact, and clear deep into the Brumbies’ half. The Aussies run the ball out, but Tom Wright loses the ball after slipping in contact.

15.00: Poor from the hosts, losing possession from their own scrum. The Brumbies win the following scrum-penalty after the Jaguares’ set-piece disintegrated.

17.00: The Jaguares have a defensive scrum inside their 22.

19.00: The Brumbies are awarded a free-kick; they opt for a scrum-feed.

20.00: TRY! Banks scores from the scrum after the Brumbies went blind. He beat Jeronimo De La Fuente and Santiago Carreras, slipping between the two outside backs and scoring in the corner. 5-10

21.00: CONVERSION! Lealiifano slots the touchline kick. 5-12

24.00: The Jaguares have had some sustained possession for the first time in the contest. They are punching their way up the field.

26.00: Oh dear, the Brumbies frustrate their hosts causing Cubelli into a rushed box-kick, which he puts out on the full.

27.00: A wayward throw by Fainga’a hands possession back to the Jaguares inside his half.

28.00: some tidy work from Banks releases pressure for only a moment. The home side runs the ball straight back at the visitors, and they are inside their 22.

29..00: Fainga’a is caught offsides. The Jaguares go quickly and win another penalty for multiple offside infringements.

30.00: De La Fuente calls for a scrum; it’s under the posts and inside the Brumbies’ 22. It is reset.

31.00: TRY! The scrum collapses but referee Marius van der Westhuizen tells Cubelli to play the ball. He does, going to his right. The ball is recycled to Matias Orlando, who goes Route One. He is tackled, but gets up and crawls over after Pete Samu is adjudged to have not held the centre in the tackle. The TMO tells the ref to award the try. 10-12

32.00: CONVERSION! Domingo Miotti levels. 12-all

33.00: The Jaguares win the turnover after a messy Brumbies’ scrum, and they begin a counter-attack.

34.00: TRY! Cancelliere started the attack before sending the ball to Emiliano Boffelli, who kicks the ball infield for his teammates to chase. The ball is recycled quickly, and after a couple of phases, Creevy crashes over. 17-12

35.00: MISS! Miotti misses again. 17-12

37.00: Tevita Kuridrani does not release after finding himself isolated. Miotti clears the Brumbies’ half.

39.00: LINEOUT STEAL! The visitors win the turnover, they are desperate to hang on until halftime, but they kick away possession.

40.00: Cubelli’s box-kick is caught by Lealiifano, who plays a one-two with Banks, and starts a counter-attack. Three phases later, they earn some respite, winning a penalty. Banks kicks to the opposition’s 22.

42.00: The Brumbies go through the phases forcing their opponents backwards. Several phases later, the Jaguares are all offside, so Lealiifano will have a chance to take a shot at goal.

43.00: PENALTY! Lealiifano makes no mistake. 17-15

The halftime score was Jaguares 17 Brumbies 15

41.00: PEEEEP! We are back underway in South America.

42.00: The Jaguares have an attacking lineout inside the tourists’ 22.

43.00: The Australians survive. Miotti tried a little dink but Banks got back to dot down for a 22 drop-out.

44.00: Terrible hands by Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro. The prop looked up at Matt Lucas taking his eyes off the ball which cost his side a counter-attack after the turnover in the maul.

46.00: It is very humid in Buenos Aires, tonight. The players are starting to struggle with their handling as well as conditioning. The coaches have started to make changes, too.

48.00: A scuffle breaks out after another scrum. The game might come down to conditioning in the last quarter.

49.00: Terrible play from Lucas, who slices his kick directly out. The Jaguares have an attacking lineout on the 22. Guess what? The hosts lose their own throw.

50.00: Alaalatoa hits Tomas Lavanini with a high shot, the lock is down, and the ref stops play to talk to the tighthead. Miotti kicks to the 5m.

51.00: Another scuffle breaks out after Creevy is tackled out. Mr Van der Westhuizen calls over both skippers to tell them he is going to the pocket after another infringement.

53.00: Santiago Medrano gets penalised for collapsing; the Brumbies can clear their lines.

56.00: Another attack is stifled by poor handling. The Jaguares forwards are trying to combine in midfield, but they are getting in the way.

58.00: Wright does well to get back and chase Carreras’ chip-kick. He is tackled into touch, but the Brumbies win the turnover after another wayward lineout.

59.00: Cancelliere caught Banks, the ball was shifted to the right before Tom Cusack coughed up possession.

60.00: Wright is offsides at the scrum. Miotti calls for the tee.

62.00: PENALTY! Miotti extends the lead. 20-15

64.00: Banks puts the penalty out on the 5m of the Jaguares.

65.00: The hosts are leaking penalties again. Lealiifano decides to go to the lineout.

66.00: YELLOW CARD! Marcos Kremer plays the ball on the ground, it’s cynical and he gets his marching orders.

68.00: Sam Carter knocks on in contact with Lavanini; the Jaguares survive the siege to the delight of the home support. That was gutsy.

71.00: The Jaguares are outside their opponent’s 22. They are still a man down so they are running down the clock.

72.00: Good work by Cusack. He holds the attacker up in then maul, winning the crucial turnover.

76.00: The Brumbies fight their way down the field and earn a penalty. They kick to the 22.

77.00: another error in the tackle by the Brumbies. Miotti bangs a kick down the field. Banks tries to take a quick throw, but the Jaguares’ kick-chase was phenomenal.

79.00: Oh dear! The home side has coughed up possession with a minute to play when all they needed to do was run down the clock. The Brumbies have one last shot.

81.00: The Brumbies cannot find the winner, instead, the Jaguares win the turnover, send the ball to Miotti, who kicks the ball into the stands. Game over!
