1.00: PEEEEP! We underway in Brisbane, Queensland.

5.00: Guido Petti wins the turnover and penalty at the ruck.

7.00: A couple of reset scrum because the pitch is breaking up underfoot.

9.00: The Reds are back inside Los Jaguares’ 22, they have gone nine phases, building patiently.

10.00: Jaguares win the turnover and clear.

12.00: Free kick to the Reds at the scrum.

21.00: PENALTY! He makes no mistake. 10-3

23.00: Jaguares clear after a Reds infringement inside their 22.

24.00: TRY! Unbelievable! Santiago Carreras scores his first Super Rugby try with some fancy footwork to keep the ball in play after Juan Cruz Mallia’s grubber in behind the opposition’s back three. The attack started when the Reds fluffed their lineout inside their half, and the ball was snapped up by the South Americans. 10-8

26.00: MISS! The kick is no good. 10-8

29.00: The Jaguares steal possession from the Reds, and start a counter-attack on halfway.

31.00: the game has reached the half-hour; it’s an arm-wrestle.

33.00: The visitors go close after a turnover; however, Higginbotham intercepts, starting a counter that ends with an Argentinian lineout.

34.00: Gonzalo Quesada’s men win a penalty and they kick to the corner.

35.00: The Jaguares’ forwards botch the driving maul after Jaco Peyper decides that Tomas Lezana was not bound by his shoulder, but his hand, as well as being in front of the ball carrier. Dodgy call.

37.00: TRY! Felipe Ezcurra throws a dummy and darts through Taniela Tupou’s tackle to score. Daiz Bonilla’s magical no-look over-the-shoulder inside pass to Mallia, was glorious, setting up the score. 10-13

41.00: PEEEEP! We are back underway in Australia.

46.00: PENALTY! Hegarty puts Queensland back in front. 16-15

48.00: A poor throw to the lineout from Creevy gives Brad Thorn’s men possession. Kerevi thinks he’s away, but Lukhan Salakaia-Loto’s hand knocked the ball forward in contact. Scrum to the tourists, who win a free kick.

49.00: Superb work by Liam Wright to win the penalty at the next ruck. Hegarty boots his team into the opposition’s 22.

50.00: Petti concedes a penalty for a lineout infringement; Queensland kick to the corner, they want a driving maul.

51.00: BIG DEFENCE from the Jaguares pack. They pushed the Reds’ maul out into touch. Queensland could not recycle the ball quick enough to the back, allowing the visitors to shove the maul out. A scuffle breaks out on cue.

52.00: Salakaia-Loto takes a shot to the jaw from team-mate Alex Mafi, he has to leave for an HIA.

54.00: The Reds are shipping penalties as the Jaguares attack inside their 22.

55.00: TRY! A 16-phase attack ends with Julian Montoya crashing over for his fifth Super Rugby try. The hooker carried three times and played a deft flick-on pass to Mayco Vivas, in the build-up, that got the South Americans over the advantage line. 16-20

56.00: CONVERSION! The conversion is good. 16-22

59.00: Queensland has a lineout on halfway. The hosts go four phases before conceding a ruck-penalty after the ball carrier was isolated.

60.00: Two side entry penalties by Thorn’s men allow the Jaguares to kick to midway of the Reds’ 22. The South American’s maul is looking good.

62.00: Higginbotham races out the line, make the tackle and Wright pilfers another penalty at the ruck. It was too slow and scrappy by the visitors.

63.00: Salakaia-Loto is back after passing his HIA.

64.00: The Reds are kicking away vital possession, the game clock is running down and they look short of ideas.

65.00: Mafi’s throw into the lineout is not straight. The Jaguares have an attacking scrum just outside their opponent’s 22.

67.00: Reds carry the ball over their goal-line giving the Argentinians a five-metre scrum under the posts.

68.00: Queensland survive! It was poor from the Jaguares, who get isolated in the traffic, and it’s that man Wright in the right place again. Hegarty clears the danger for his side; they are still in this.

70.00: TRY! The ball was recycled quickly to Marcos Kremer, who bashed through Scott Malolua’s tackle to extend the lead after a driving maul. The lineout came from another scrum-penalty conceded by the Reds. 16-27

71.00: CONVERSION! The kick is good. 16-29

74.00: Peyper has to talk to the skippers about the disciplinary issue by the sides. Higginbotham is penalised. The Jaguares opt for a scrum.

77.00: TRY! Jock Campbell looks to have scored; the ref awards the try, but he is going to the TMO, anyway. Yes, it’s good. It’s close in Queensland. 21-29

78.00: CONVERSION! Hegarty slots the touchline kick to give his side hope. 23-29

79.00: TRY! Carreras intercepts, and races away to break Reds’ hearts. 23-34
