Martin Landajo try brace lifts Jaguares to historic victory

Martin Landajo recorded a brace of tries as Argentinian debutants Jaguares made their Super Rugby bow in style with a 34-33 comeback victory over the Cheetahs at Free State Stadium.

The hosts, who at one point held a 24-3 lead, scored tries through Francois Venter, a penalty try, Torsten van Jaarsveld and William Small-Smith with Fred Zeilinga kicking 10 points and Charles Marais claiming a penalty.

But the Jaguares, who were only founded last year, hit back with five-pointers from Agustin Creevy and Rodrigo Baez adding to fly-half Landajo's double and 14 points from the boot of Nicolas Sanchez to seal the win.
