Scorecard

Jaguares came up with an impressive performance as they went on to reach the final in the ongoing season of the Super Rugby with a 39-7 win over Brumbies at Estadio Jose Amalfitani.

The Argentinan side will now face the winner of Crusaders and Hurricanes in the final on 6th July.

Tomas Cubelli gave a perfect start to Jaguares with an early fourth minute try while Joaquin Diaz Bonilla extended the lead further with a conversion and followed it with back to back penalties to make it 13-0.

The home side looked in total control as they stretched their lead to 20 points when Tomas Lavanini powered over the line from close range in the 19th minute with Bonilla kicking the extras once again.

Just as the half-time was approaching, Folau Fainga'a continued his impressive form this season with a touchdown in the 40th minute to open Brumbies' account and Christian Leali'ifano's conversion meant the teams went into the second half with a 20-7 scoreline.

Lealiifano's grubber kick in the second half proved costly as Matias Moroni sprinted clear and offloaded to Matias Orlando as he dived over the line for Jaguares' third try to make the scoreline 27-7. Orlando got his second try at the start of the third quarter as Jaguares seemed confident with their lead rising to 27 points.

With a place in the final sealed, Jaguares capped off the encounter with a try from Emiliano Boffelli in the 78th minute to complete a 39-7 win.
