The Southern Kings scored two tries in the last six minutes for a dramatic 29-22 Super Rugby win over Los Jaguares, who finished the match with 12 men.

Louis Fouche's early penalty was cancelled out by two from Nicolas Sanchez as the Argentinian side led 6-3 at half-time despite having Tomas Lavanini and Ramiro Herrera sent off.

Sanchez added three more penalties to make it 15-3 but Schalk Ferreira's try started the fightback and though Facundo Isa crossed for Jaguares, Tomas Lezana was sin-binned for the final 10 minutes and a penalty try cut the gap once more.

Dewald Human and new loan signing Wandile Mjekevu then snatched victory for the hosts.
