Jaguares beat Reds in Buenos Aires




The Jaguares have played the Reds three times in Super Rugby since 2017, the Jaguares winning twice and losing once.

The two Jaguares wins give them a record of winning 67% of their matches against the Reds regardless of venue.

  • The Jaguares have won two of their three previous meetings with the Reds in Super Rugby (L1), including a 34-23 win in their most recent encounter.
  • The Jaguares have won nine of their last 10 Super Rugby games against Australian opponents, including their last six on the bounce; though, their only defeat in that span was to the Queensland Reds.
  • The Reds have won just two of their last 16 Super Rugby away matches (L14); although, they have picked up a losing bonus point in four of their previous five defeats in that run.
  • The Jaguares (920) is one of only two teams (Crusaders – 967) to have gained 900+ metres so far in the 2020 Super Rugby season; indeed, they are the only side to have made 30+ clean breaks (34).
  • Bryce Hegarty (Reds) boasts a 100% goal-kicking record (8/8) in the 2020 Super Rugby campaign; his tally is the most of any player yet to miss a single attempt, while only two have kicked more than him overall (Curwin Bosch, Sharks, 12 and Domingo Miotti, Jaguares, 11).

Match detail

We are waiting for the kick-off.

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

1.00: PEEEEP! We are underway in South America.

2.00: The Reds spoil the home team’s lineout, winning possession and attacking from their 22. The visitors take the ball up to halfway, but a knock-on by Taniela Tupou after a hospital pass from Lukhan Salakaia-Loto.

3.00: Big shove from Queensland, they win possession and a rare tighthead. The Reds go deep into the opposition’s 22, but possession is lost and the ball booted into Reds territory.

5.00: A kicking duel ensues between the sides, who have kept the ball in play for almost three minutes despite turning over possession once each.

7.00: It’s end-to-end in Buenos Aires, but a lot of risky passing, careless one would say, being thrown around.

10.00: Reds attacking inside the home side’s 22.

11.00: TRY! The Reds go 12 phases into the Jaguares’ 22 before Domingo Miotti fell for James O’Connor’s dummy, allowing the stand-off to break free and send Tate McDermott. 0-5

12.00: CONVERSION! Jock Campbell adds the flyhalf. 0-7

16.00: Queensland is dominating the early exchanges, pinning the Jaguares inside their half and forcing errors on defence.

19.00: TRY! Henry Speight charges down the sideline, steps inside a defender and offloads a sumptuous chicken-wing pass out the back door to the supporting Liam Wright, who swerves around Santiago Carreras and score next to the posts. 0-12

21.00: CONVERSION! Campbell slots the easy kick. 0-14

23.00: Chris Feauai-Sautia is lucky to stay on the field after a high shot to McDermott. Miotti boots the ball to the 22. Another penalty for offsides, and go for another lineout.

24.00: TRY! Julian Montoya flops over the chalk after a devastating rolling maul that included almost the entire Jaguares backline. 5-14

25.00: CONVERSION! Miotti sends the ball through the middle of the sticks from out wide. 7-14

28.00: The Reds are in a good position to attack from a scrum on the Jaguares’ 10m.

29.00: TRY! Feauai-Sautia scores in the corner after a break and offload by Campbell. The winger uses the two-on-one to his advantage to increase his team’s lead. 7-19

30.00: MISS! Campbell pushes his kick wide. 7-19

34.00: The Reds survive a siege by their hosts, who had several chances at points but could not get their maul going.

36.00: TRY! Feauai-Sautia scores his second after Hunter Paisami’s sublime linebreak from midfield set-up Tupou, who was tackled short of the posts by Matias Moroni. The Reds quickly recycled the ball to the wing, who walked over to score. 7-24

37.00: MISS! The kick is wide. 7-24

39.00: The Jaguares have botched a couple of driving mauls on the Reds’ line; Miotti kicks to the corner again. This time the hosts get their maul moving in the right direction, but it collapses short.

41.00: The Jaguares have the penalty-advantage, the ball goes to Miotti, who puts an accurate cross-kick to Emiliano Boffelli. The winger is challenged in the air by Campbell. The fullback knocks the ball forward but Boffelli gathers the ball and dots down. 12-24

44.00: CONVERSION! Miotti adds the two. 19-24

48.00: PENALTY! Miotti makes it a two-point ball-game. 22-24

51.00: The Reds are pounding away inside the opposition’s 22. Paisami burst through a huge hole but was ankle-tapped before falling over. The ball was recycled but nothing came of the attack.

52.00: A penalty is awarded for offside to the Aussies.

53.00: PENALTY! Campbell makes no mistake. 22-27

55.00: Speight almost scores, but the defender carries the ball over the line for a Reds 5m scrum.

57.00: O’Connor almost scores, but he drops the ball in the act of grounding. The Jaguares then start throwing the ball around inside their in-goal. It is helter-skelter in Buenos Aires. Boffelli took a huge hit to the ribs by Feauai-Sautia after receiving a hospital pass during the melee.

60.00: The Jaguares win a scrum-penalty, and clear. They are on the attack inside the Reds half and getting near the 22.
