Hurricanes blow by Jaguares in Super Rugby

The Hurricanes have bounced back from being held scoreless last week to cross for two tries in the final 10 minutes to snatch a 26-23 Super Rugby win over the Jaguares on Saturday.

The Argentines led 10-9 at halftime courtesy of a Domingo Miotti penalty goal and a converted Marcos Kremer try on 23 minutes.

Last year's beaten finalists appeared set for their second home win in succession after a converted try from Agustin Creevy (63rd) gave them a 23-12 lead late in the second half.

However, the visitors maintained their composure to rally late and were rewarded with two converted tries to pull off the comeback win.

Substitute Alex Fidow touched down in the 70th before centre Ngani Leaumape created the match-winning try for replacement scrum-half Jamie Booth in the 77th, with both converted by Jordie Barrett.

There was drama when the Argentine television official attempted to intervene and call a forward pass but South African referee Rasta Rasivhenge refused to change his call.

All Blacks star Barrett also kicked four penalty goals as the Wellington-based franchise got over last week's disappointment of failing to score a point for the first time in 20 years.
