Jaguares end winless run by upstaging Waratahs

The Waratahs and their unbeaten start to the Super Rugby season came to an end as the Jaguares secured their maiden win of the campaign in Buenos Aires.

Visiting from New South Wales, the Waratahs had recorded back-to-back victories to open the season ahead of their trip to face the Jaguares.
