A pair of late tries gave the Jaguares a 27-12 victory over the Bulls and their first win of the Super Rugby season.

The Jaguares were beaten 25-16 at home to the Lions in round one last week, but the Argentine side opened their account thanks to Rodrigo Bruni and Bautista Delguy.

The Jaguares led  7-3 at halftime after Bulls flyhalf Handre Pollard left a pass hanging that was scooped up by centre Matias Orlando and taken back 70-metres.

The Bulls – 40-3 winners last time out – held a 12-9 lead on the hour-mark after fly-half Handre Pollard converted his fourth penalty of the game for the South African visitors in Buenos Aires on Saturday.

Bruni grounded the ball following a rolling maul in the 63rd minute and Joaquin Diaz Bonilla added the extras, before Delguy sealed the victory on the overlap nine minutes later.

The Bulls problems overseas continue, with their run of failing to get a win on foreign soil extending once again. The last international came in 2016. The return home to face the Lions and Sharks in consecutive weeks.
