    Cheetahs out-muscled by Jaguares

    2017-03-18 23:33

    Cape Town - The Cheetahs were out-muscled in Buenos Aires on Saturday as they fell to a 41-14 defeat to the Jaguares.

    As it happened: Jaguares v Cheetahs

    It means that the men from Bloemfontein have now won two and lost two this Super Rugby season. 

    The Jaguares scored five tries in the match - three of which came in the opening half-an-hour in a period of play that would ultimately prove to be the difference. 

    The Cheetahs scored a try of their own through outside centre Michael van der Spuy, but they went into half time trailing 24-7. 

    The visitors enjoyed far more territory and possession in the second half and manufactured a number of scoring opportunities, but errors at critical moments cost them dearly. 

    They did get their second try through replacement hooker Joseph Dweba, but they had left themselves too much to do by that stage.

    Jaguares right wing Ramiro Moyano completed his hat-trick late in the game to put the result beyond any doubt before a penalty try on the final whistle secured the bonus point for the hosts.
