Watch: Chiefs steal last-gasp win in Buenos Aires

Scrumhalf Te Toiroa Tehuriorangi has scored a try with three minutes remaining to give the Hamilton-based Chiefs a thrilling 30-27 Super Rugby win over the Jaguares.

The Chiefs took a 17-6 lead to halftime after tries to Damian McKenzie and Tumua Manu and extended the lead after the interval.

But the hosts, playing more expansively in the second half, hit back with a Joaquin Tuculet try and rallied to tie the scores at 20-20, with a try to Pablo Matera in the 55th minute.

The Chiefs edged ahead 23-20 with a McKenzie penalty before the Jaguares seized their first lead on 73 minutes with a try to Matias Orlando, and a conversion.

With time running out, the Chiefs worked a simple blindside move from a scrum for replacement Tehuriorangi to score the decisive try and McKenzie converted with a kick that went over off the post. The Chiefs fullback finished with a personal tally of 20 points.

Despite the win, the Chiefs are bottom of the New Zealand conference while the Jaguares are last in the South African conference but the Waikato-based side will return from their road trip with two crucial wins.
