Town - The Jaguares have
stunned the Chiefs in
Hamilton to make it four out of four on their Australasian tour.
The Argentines, who scored two
tries to one from the hosts, were full value for their win as they emerged 23-19 victors.
It means that they have beaten
New Zealand opposition, in New Zealand, twice in as many weeks following last
weekend's triumph over the Blues.
Wins in Melbourne against the
Rebels and then in Canberra against the Brumbies came first, leaving the Jaguares
with a perfect record as their tour Down Under comes to an end.
The Chiefs relied on four Damian
McKenzie penalties to take a 12-10 lead into half-time, but they did not fire in the second half thanks largely to the fact that they were reduced to 13 men
at one stage.
Mistakes plagued the hosts
throughout the contest, but the Jaguares defended like trojans while, on
attack, they were physical and clinical.
The win means that the Jags
solidify 2nd place in the South African Conference while they move up to 7th
The Chiefs, meanwhile, stay 4th
in the New Zealand Conference and 6th overall.
