Match preview:

The Jaguares will be looking to continue their strong form against Australian Super Rugby sides when they host the Queensland Reds today. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match from 8:40am AEDT.

Despite losing their opening three matches of the season, the Jaguares bounced back last week against the Waratahs, securing a 10 point victory at home in a high scoring contest.

The Jaguares destroyed NSW in the first half, scoring five tries to lay the platform for a much-needed victory that could finally kickstart their Super Rugby campaign.

Indeed the Jaguares have won their past three matches and four of six clashes overall against Australian teams in Super Rugby so far.


The Reds should know full well what they are in for tonight given that they too lost in Velez Sarsfield this time last year.

In team news, Angus Scott-Young has been handed the No.6 jersey for the Reds’ clash in Argentina on Sunday morning (AEDT) against the Jaguares.

His move off the bench forces Adam Korczyk to openside flanker and shifts Liam Wright to the reserves.

Former Brumbies prop Ruan Smith is also in line to make his Queensland debut after he sneaked into the reserves along with hooker Andrew Ready and utility back Ben Lucas.

Alex Mafi, Sef Fa’agase, Tate McDermott were dropped from the 23.

Jaguares coach Mario Ledesma has named an unchanged starting side from the one that beat the Waratahs 38-28 last week, although star halves Martin Landajo and Juan Martin Hernandez are included on the bench.

The Jaguares at their best will ask plenty of questions of Queensland’s defence. When momentum is on their side, the Jaguares can pile points on pretty quickly so the key for the Reds will be to turn this contest into an arm wrestle, just like the Western Force and Brumbies did last season when they travelled to Argentina and won.

If the Reds can do that, victory will be in sight. If not, the Jaguares will pounce on win no. 2 of the season.
