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 in Argentina at Jose Amalfitani Stadium, Buenos Aires.

3.00: Sergeal Petersen is down, so Herschel Jantjies clears long. The Stormers try to run from their 22, they lose possession giving the Jaguares the ball to attack. Cobus Wiese wins the ball, back before a knock on by the flanker leads to a scrum.

4.00: TRY! Pablo Matera scores his fifth try of the season after Emiliano Boffelli’s perfectly timed run opened up the South Africans. It came from first-phase ball, and they recycled quickly for the fullback to break the line. 5-0

5.00: CONVERSION! Domingo Miotti adds the extras. 7-0

7.00: Damian Willemse is down, now. Petersen has not returned. Willemse was double-teamed by Matias Moroni and Matias Orlando.

9.00: The Stormers’ backline is all offsides. Miotti decides to have a shot at goal.

11.00: PENALTY! Miotti extends the lead. 10-0

13.00: The Cape Town side has leaked two penalties and four handling errors in the first 12 minutes; they also turned the ball over twice and are struggling to keep possession.

14.00: Stormers win a penalty for side entry at the breakdown. Jean-Luc du Plessis clears.

15.00: Guido Petti gets penalised for playing the “man in the air” in the lineout. Jean-Luc du Plessis calls for the tee.

16.00: PENALTY! Du Plessis puts the Stormers on the scoreboard. 10-3

18.00: Tomas Lavanini gives away a penalty inside the Stormers’ 22 for not rolling away. The ball is hoofed into touch near halfway.

20.00: Robbie Fleck’s men have come back since the early siege. They have forced their hosts to give away needless penalties, at the same time, they have had some territory and possession.

21.00: BIG SCRUM! The Stormers absorbed the pressure and won a penalty thanks to their forwards. Du Plessis opts for a 51-metre shot at goal.

23.00: MISS! It’s a poor strike by the flyhalf, he shanks his kick well wide. 10-3

24.00: Another penalty conceded by the Jaguares gives Du Plessis another chance for three.

25.00: PENALTY! The flyhalf doubles his side’s lead from in front. 10-6

27.00: The South Africans are getting some purchase in the tight phases, especially the scrum. Wilco Louw, Mbongeni Mbonambi and Steven Kitshoff have been excellent.

29.00: It’s hot and humid, the players are taking water while they wait between scrums.

30.00: Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro gives away another scrum-penalty.

31.00: PENALTY! Du Plessis reduces the deficit to one. 10-9

34.00: More stoppages, more handling errors, more scrums.

36.00: A scuffle breaks out after the scrum. It’s a messy affair in South America.

37.00: Du Plessis kicks a monster kick to the opposition’s 22.

38.00: The Jaguares rescue the situation after Tomas Cubelli wins a turnover inside his 22. Stormers concede another penalty, allowing Miotti to clear the danger.

40.00: The Stormers mount a counter-attack from their 22 after winning a turnover. They have a scrum, but they will probably kick the ball out and head to the sheds.

41.00: Eben Etzebeth, after a TMO review, is pinged for a high tackle around Agustin Creevy’s neck. Miotti calls for the tee.

42.00: PENALTY! Miotti adds the three. 13-9

The halftime score was Jaguares 13 Stormers 9

41.00: PEEEEP! We are back underway in Buenos Aires.

43.00: We have an early second-half scrum – of course.

45.00: The Stormers win a scrum-penalty, and will take a shot.

47.00: PENALTY! Du Plessis reduces the gap from in front. 13-12

50.00: Seabelo Senatla breaks the line, but he can’t find support. The ball is intercepted and the Jaguares are inside the Stormers’ 22.

51.00: TRY! The Jaguares send the ball through several pairs of hands to Ramiro Moyano, who scores in the corner. It was superb execution from the home team. 18-12

53.00: CONVERSION! Miotti slots the sideline kick. 20-12

55.00: The Jaguares maul from their 22 before Cubelli clears with a bomb.

57.00: The Stormers are building through the phases; they win a penalty for offsides. Willemse is down again, but it does not look bad.

59.00: Willemse is up, and he is taking the long-range penalty (about 42 metres).

60.00: PENALTY! Willemse slots the kick: Wow! 20-15

61.00: Another penalty is given to the visitors. Willemse calls for the tee.

63.00: PENALTY! Willemse is on fire! He makes no mistake from wide. 20-18

64.00: Corne Fourie gets caught offsides on his 10m. Miotti will attempt a long distance kick.

65.00: PENALTY! The 22-year-old makes no mistake. It’s an exhibition of goal-kicking in an otherwise dull match. 23-18

68.00: Fleck’s men will need to get some control inside their half because they have been punished for their sloppiness.

70.00: Moroni goes close, but he is tackled into touch after collecting Miotti’s cross-kick. Lineout to the visitors on their line.

71.00: Justin Phillips knocks on giving the hosts an attacking scrum about 10 metres in-field.

72.00: The Jaguares have another penalty; they are camped inside the 22, and they look like scoring. We are checking for cynical play by Johannes Engelbrecht, who deliberately knocked down a sure try for Moroni.

72.00: PENALTY TRY! YELLOW CARD! Johannes Engelbrecht is in the bin, too. 30-18

75.00: TRY! Phillips breaks from a centre-field scrum and ghosts through the Jaguares into the 22. He plays Dillyn Leyds, on his outside, and Leyds pops to Senatla to finish. 30-23

76.00: CONVERSION! Willemse gives his side a chance. 30-25

78.00: One last shot for the visitors, they have a scrum inside their half, and will need some more magic if they are to get out of Argentina with a win.

82.00: The hosts are conceding penalties at a rate of knots, it’s given Fleck’s side a chance with a penalty inside their opponent’s 22.

83.00: Willemse kicks for touch. The Stormers will look to their driving maul.

84.00: Oh dear! The lineout is a mess. The Jaguares win possession, and clear. Game over!
