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

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

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.

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.
