- Argentine side the Jaguares spectacularly snapped a seven-match Super Rugby losing streak Saturday by crushing the struggling Southern Kings 73-27 in Buenos Aires. The South Americans scored 11 tries as they gained their second win of a maiden season in the southern hemisphere franchise championship, and a first at home. Loose forward Leonardo Senatore led the way with a hat-trick of tries while fly-half Nicolas Sanchez, leading scorer at the 2015 Rugby World Cup in England, converted nine while another hit a post. "It was good to win playing good rugby," said scrum-half Martin Landajo, one of many Argentine internationals in the Jaguares squad. "This is a long tournament and we have some catching up to do. Our ambitions include getting the ball wide and it worked sometimes tonight -- on other occasions we were not successful."
