Queensland Reds registered their successive win as they came from behind to beat Jaguares 7-18 in their Super Rugby face-off on Saturday.

James Tuttle started the proceedings with a third-minute penalty for Reds but the response from Jaguares came in the sixth minute with a touchdown from Bautista Delguy but that remained the only points in the game for the home side.

With 13 minutes to go for half time, Brandon Paenga-Amosa scored the opening try for the visitors in the 27th minute. Tuttle missed out on the conversion but instead kicked a penalty to bring the scoreline to 7-11 at the end of the first half.

Filipo Daugunu further extended Reds' lead to 11 points when he dived past the line in the 46th minute while Tuttle slotted the conversion this time. The final 32 minutes saw both the teams failing to score points as Reds completed a 7-18 victory.

Reds moved to the second position in the Australian Conference while Jaguares continue to languish at the bottom of South African Conference.
