Jaguares outclass Waratahs

Jaguares outclass Waratahs

The Jaguares have continued their unbeaten streak on Australian soil, defeating the Waratahs 23-15 at Bankwest Stadium. The Argentinian side controlled possession throughout the first half, racing out to a 13-3 lead. However, the Waratahs fought back thanks to strong performances from their bench, especially Curtis Rona to bring them within two points.

However, the Jaguares showed their class to control the last ten minutes, kicking two penalty goals to secure the win and reinforce their lead in the South African Conference. As for the Waratahs, a lack of execution and creativity in key moments has now meant that their finals campaign starts three weeks earlier than it should, needing to be perfect to have any shot at the top 8.

The Match

The first 20 minutes of the match saw both sides fight for territory, with the most noteworthy incident coming with the injury to Karmichael Hunt in the first 5 minutes, who has appeared to damaged his MCL.

The first half was dominated by the Jaguares and they were rewarded with first points after Jeronimo De La Fuente put a pinpoint grubber through for Ramiro Moyano to score, putting them ahead 7-0.

The Jaguares looked to extend their lead immediately after the kickoff, however, Lalakai Foketi snatched a clutch intercept on the goal-line to prevent the Argentinians from going further ahead.

The Waratahs were starved of possession within the Jaguares half throughout the first half, having just 29% in the first half. They would make use of their chances at the back end of the half, with Bernard Foley slotting a penalty at the 35-minute mark to keep the side in touch down 7-3.

However, Foketi would gift the Jaguares an easy penalty goal, showing a lack of effort in failing to get back onside, with Miotti slotting the penalty from right in front to make the score 10-3 Jaguares at half time.

Lalakai Fekatoa offloads to Beale.

The Jaguares got off to the ideal start in the 2nd half, with Moyano crossing for his second after taking advantage of some poor defence from the Waratahs backs, particular Kurtley Beale. Miotti would convert from the sideline to extend the lead out to 17-3.

After this try, the Waratahs decision to inject fresh legs seemed to work a treat, with Curtis Rona bursting through, pulled down just before the line, earning a penalty. The Waratahs forwards took full advantage of this opportunity, muscling over from the rolling maul for a penalty try, along with a yellow card to Pablo Matera.

The Waratahs would appear to have evened the score up, however, on review Foketi was deemed to have gone into touch in the build-up phases.

However, they would not be denied shortly after, with replacement Curtis Rona rewarded for his strong efforts to cross in the corner. Foley would strike the upright with the conversion to maintain the Jaguares lead 17-15 after 65 minutes.

The Jaguares would extend their lead after a suspiciously long advantage with replacement Joaquin Diaz Bonilla making no mistake to extend to lead out to 20-15.

They would control the play from this point onwards, kicking another penalty goal to secure a 23-15 victory and the top of the South African conference.

The Turning Point

The penalty in the 71st minutes killed off any momentum and potential Waratahs comeback, allowing the Jaguares to control the play and secure the victory.

The GAGR MOTM

Ramiro Moyano burnt the Waratahs backline when he had the ball in hand, recording the only tries for the Jaguares, along with 7 tackle busts and four linebreaks.

Wallaby Watch

Curtis Rona, Michael Hooper and Ned Hanigan were amongst the best for the Waratahs. However, there were let down by a lack of creativity and execution from their key playmakers in Bernard Foley and Kurtley Beale which resulted in another loss. Concerns for Karmichael Hunt and Cam Clark who limped off with injuries

  • Cameron Rivett

    Before anyone asks, my understanding is that the TMO is allowed to go back two phases to check something. After Foketi steps out, Fitzpatrick takes the ball to ground just inside the sideline and a ruck forms. Then the Foley hits the ball up and a ruck forms. Then Phipps scores his try. As far as I can tell, the TMO was within his jurisdiction to disallow the try.

    Good game though, both teams play great spectator rugby and it’s just a shame the Tahs lost Hunt so early. Time to get on the Brumbies bandwagon I guess.

    • Bobas

      also, the correct thing to do because he was out of bounds. In the Rebels game the on-field referee had to make up a forward pass call as his touch judge missed a blatant knock-on. Something that shouldn’t have to be done but the ball had moved two phases since and he knew from the players body language that it was a knock on, even though he was unsighted, and when he asked he the touchy said he was ‘unsure’.

    • GO THE Q REDS

      Yep and the players asked that question too. Reff had zero excuse to miss that. A rather basic rule that one……

      • Bobas

        Peyper didn’t exactly miss it, he raced over when the try was scored to say he let play go on because he thought he wasn’t in possession when he was standing in contact with the sideline. I personally like that call from Peyper.

        • Howard

          I like that call too. It he was unsure then play on and look at it on the next stoppage. It was the right decision and the Argies would have rightly been aggrieved if it was allowed

        • GO THE Q REDS

          I was referring to the TMO not Peyper.The players asked the question…… sideline and TMO picked that up and Peyper did the right thing by referring back to it latter. Rather simple!

    • Kiwi rugby lover

      I think they can go back further if the referee asks but tbh I’m not sure

    • Brisneyland Local

      The TMO can go back two phases. But if the referump asks they can back further. For foul play there is no limit to how many phases they can go back.

  • Hoss

    That game sums up life as Tah’s fan just so succinctly. The lead up to the second Pumas, sorry, Jaguares try, went something like this and please remember these gents are ALL current and likely to remain current Wallabies

    : The Bovine Sprinkler gets ball stolen twice at back of own ruck in a matter of minutes
    : Spanners kicks not once but twice to a Jag player on the full fixing them good field
    Position and front foot pill
    : Gilbert similarly decides to kick back to their blind side winger, also on the full (with all our troops amassing in D towards open side wing). Then with the touch line as his friend and last line of defence he decided the optimum tackling effectiveness would be to remove the ears of the Juan Sanchez Pablo something-or-other (South American Welsh this lot).

    The 2019 Waratah side ladies and gents, poo of the highest order. At least it removes any misgivings I had about cheering the Ponies or Frebels. The great injustice of this year is the Tah’s could still make the finals – deserved anyone ?????????

    • D. Braithwaite’s The Brumbies

      I think that’s fairly unlikely at this point. Do Waratahs start as favourites for any of their last three games??

      • Hoss

        Not in my book mate. The horrendous irony could be though that the Tah’s find form and disrupt the Ponies / Frebels finals chances. You could almost back it in. Having been lame ducks they find form and spoil the party

        • Custard Taht

          I think the Tahts will do the Rebels next week, but the Brumbies will kick the Tahts.

          Foley and Beale will have their annual great game. And that will be all the evidence Cheika will need to justify their selection as Wallaby 10 and 15……I think we will see cheika go 10. Foley 12. Toomua 13. Kerevi 15. Beale, with DHP on one of the wings.

          When form probably says 10. Cooper 12. Kerevi 13. Kurindrani 15. DHP.

        • D. Braithwaite’s The Brumbies

          If the Rebels can’t beat the Tahs next week then Wessels has to really go back to the drawing board. The Waratahs are not so good that losing to them 4 times in 2 years is acceptable.

          Will Naisarani and Jones be back? Could make a big difference.

        • Custard Taht

          I don’t think it will be a case of the Rebels losing because of their own poor play etc…..but more a case of the Waratahs actually turning up to play, and Foley and Beale playing above themselves. They will be aware of the knives sharpening and will have their best game of the season.

          I hope the Rebels win, but can sense the Tahs playing their “final” next week.

        • MalachyBernard

          Totally agree that a Rebels win will be the best medicine for the Tahs and the Wallabies. I not naive enough to think that will stop Chekia from picking his eternal favorites, but boy would the stock of Dave Wessels and his team go up, especially in a post Chekia world.

        • Brisneyland Local

          CT you are probably spot on there.

        • D. Braithwaite’s The Brumbies

          I think Banks has been the form fullback since about round 4-5. But I’m perfectly happy for him to be on the wing and Dane at fullback. Probably offers the best balance, and means Banks doesn’t get a baptism of fire.

        • Brisneyland Local

          DBTB, taht makes sense. I think DHP is really good under the high ball and has a great ball in hand kicking game. And as I think we are starting to see that the back three (i.e. Wings and Fullbacks play inter changeable roles most of the time. So with Banks and DHP, and maybe Hodge their we have a good mix. Having the right 10 and centres to feed them is going to be the scary Cheika question.

    • Keith Butler

      I feel for you Hoss. Being a lifelong Rebs supporter I’ve had to suffer many seasons of dross but at least we seem to be on the up. Beale’s attempted tackle (and I use the word loosely – a bit like diahorrea) was a thing of beauty. The G&G need this man as their last line of defence in the RWC. We have taste tested the Devils Corner Pinot Noir and its very nice. I still have a feeling that the prize may be heading your way after next weeks match up.

      • Hoss

        I really feel for the forwards mate. They really put in and defended really well. Hanigan was good against an international pack, Hooper as always played very well, Wells was also good.

        I would pose some question to the learned on here though – may not be answers available though:

        1. Has there ever been a player miss more kicks for touch from penalties than Spanners ?
        2. Has a player ever hit the uprights during conversion attempts as much as Spanners?
        3. what is the average yardage from kicks by kicker over the last few years (say top 5 kickers v Spanners)?

        Let’s be honest, the only time the Tah’s looked any good last night was when it was v 14. Gilbert had some fine involvements but the ‘mania’ is back in his game again. I don’t know whether to look or look away when he gets the pill. For all his ‘X’ factor and undoubted skill, give me ‘boring’ old DHP any time and Gilbert on the pine to cut loose in last 20.

        • Pedro

          I agree about Beale. When he gets the ball in space he will always use it up, even when there are two players outside him. He’s trying to do too much himself.

        • Hoss

          Spot on mate, there’s the perfect example late in the game when we had turnover pill. Two-dads is running a beautiful line between two fractured Jags defenders. Gilbert scoots sideways closing down AAC’s space and line, the defence slide with Gilbert as well further eroding said gap, time and space. Just as Gilbert ruins the opp, takes the space, what does he do, yep, hospital pass. Two-dads spills it, I reach for the self-medication and in my mind I can hear Benny Hill music and another season slide like a turd, down the gurgler…….

          Come on Ponies

        • Brumby Runner

          I think you are much too generous to Beale, Hoss, having him on the pine. While he can’t or won’t put effort into tackling, he is only a portion of a whole rugby player, and a very inconsistent portion at that.

          The old argument that can be put forward to defend Spanners – that there is no one better – cannot be used to defend KB. Both DHP and Banks are better all round rugby players than Beale and both play at No 15.

        • D. Braithwaite’s The Brumbies

          Don’t forget Hodge or Maddocks.

        • Brumby Runner

          I like Hodge at 15, but I am coming round to your view on Maddocks. Doesn’t seem to be quite at Super level let alone higher.

        • D. Braithwaite’s The Brumbies

          I think he would make a better fist of fullback than wing. He certainly isn’t a super rugby winger.

        • Hoss

          Not much to argue with. I would refer to Segalls comments about 6 weeks back. Something like ‘where form is similar, combinations will take precedence’. On form Powell and Lilo would be 9-10. Kerevi & Kurindrani (come good last month) the centres and Maddocks, Naivalu and Sauce the back three. We are a little spoilt for choice at present. Should’ve axed the Force years ago……

        • yep, better chances at winning the Oz conference at least that way.

        • Kiwi rugby lover

          Bang on

        • GO THE Q REDS

          Mate I’ve got some Bernard’s Foley’s stats for you…… but there’s just no way the average public punter can handle seeing them!

        • Hoss

          Fire away GTQR. I woke this morning and had an epiphany, just how often does Spanners – fail to find touch from a penalty (it must average near one/game), hit an upright and also get a kick charged down ??

          Talk about rugby being a game of
          momentum, these events above are killers.

        • Custard Taht

          What were the odds on the Jags winning by 8? Perhaps the Tahs are finding a new method of third party payments!

    • Kiwi rugby lover

      Just watched it this morning. Summed up pretty well mate. They actually did have some good go forward when they ran and passed but it seemed to be something they just aren’t comfortable with.
      AAC is a liability mate. Too slow and some poor decisions. Beale did some great attacking moves in broken play but didn’t seem to know where to go in defence. I think he comes into 10 far too much and doesn’t actually offer anything there.

    • Custard Taht

      I think people shouldn’t lose sight of the fact that Tahs just played the Saffa conference leaders…..and also that this team has beaten the Bulls, Sharks, Stormers, Brumbies and Hurricanes. They are a good team, and they are certainly not a team that should have been placed in the Tahs will win column.

      Nor does it excuse the poor play by the Tahs playmakers.

      • Hoss

        Not lost on me, but also the same side (Tah’s) who lost to the Sunwolves and therein lies the rub.

        • Custard Taht

          Yeah……..

      • GO THE Q REDS

        And we all know in Cheikas mind he was thinking that was basically a Wallaby Vs Argies game……. No wonder the wallabies ranking is so low!

    • Zippo

      Can we throw into the pile of poo, hooper’s missed tackle on Tomas Cubelli, and when he had a 2nd crack, little Tomas Cubelli carried him for about 20m in post contact metres.

    • Singapore Sling

      Late to the party here but it must almost as difficult supporting the Tahs as it is the Reds.

      Gilbert’s effort on Moyano was pitiful. The Reds had a similar piss weak effort from Prince, the player formally known as Tui on the Chief’s no.8, touch rugby at its best.

      I actually think Australian has the best talent we’ve had in years just gotta get the form players in the Wallabies.

      • Hoss

        Agree re player depth mate and a glimmer of hope with Mandrake and the Schnozz to temper Segall’s worst inclinations / selections. The trick will be getting the planets to align and leave the past behind (Lee Magors as captain, Spanners as 10 for example).

        It’s a one-off tournament, let’s pick accordingly and worry about 2020 and beyond later.

  • Andy

    Foley and Beale were utter poo. Can’t win tight games against decent opposition. The moment pressure come on they shit themselves. All the marks of a group of players with a losing culture

    • GO THE Q REDS

      Mate at least Beale looked threatening on occasions…. Foley had a tiresome list of stuff ups and very few things to make up for it! He missed a penalty kick for touch AGAIN, he got charged down, he got run over falling off multiple tackles and missing others, he failed to slide in defense slipping over letting a break inside him, he kicked multiple clearances directly to defenders, his touchfinders were poor….. one of them hot on attack 30m out….. made a 10m gain. HUH!!! All that in the 50mins I could bare watch him…..and all that for a penalty converted and 2 small hitups!
      We’ve just seen SO little from Foley this season…… how is he even invited to wallaby camp!
      I mean the Argies even rested Bonnilla Diaz and used their new young 10 and even he schooled them in game management and playmaking! Not good…..

      • D. Braithwaite’s The Brumbies

        Come on mate, don’t even try and defend Beale. That tackle attempt was, and I’m not even exaggerating here, the most embarrassing attempt I can ever remember seeing by an international rugby player. It was worse than Mike Catt’s effort vs Lomu.

        Had time to build up speed and bit in a shoulder about 2m from the sideline. Was the easiest tackle to make but instead he just gives Moyano a little stroke on the neck.

        Pathetic.

        • D. Braithwaite’s The Brumbies

          If he starts for then Wallabies then the jersey is in the bin.

          Also, can we take a moment to launch at the fact that Cheika spent close to three years trying to have Beale start int he most physical defensive position? What amazing rugby nous Cheika has.

      • Andy

        I agree Foley was utter shite. And has been for a while now. But Beale needs to take equal shit for that performance. That defensive effort from him on their 2nd try is not acceptable even at club rugby level.

        Interestingly, Gibson’s post match comments are pretty damning.

        “Obviously the kick duels, kick battles, the Jags did a better job there in terms of relieving their pressure. And metres gained on their kicks, they seemed to be able to get out of their area much more efficiently than what we did.

        “And then when we had possession, we looked a little bit impatient, we wanted to score off every possession as opposed to being satisfied to go through the phases”.

        That critique is on the money and the damning part is it is directly related to their Wallaby leaders. Beale and Foley’s kicking was terrible and they were outplayed by far less experienced players at home and in the critical moments. And the game management, well after 10 years of professional rugby if they haven’t figured it out yet they aren’t going to now…..

        • GO THE Q REDS

          Yep agreed. Beale is no exception. I always think if your going to have a garbage nite littered with stuff ups then it’s at least excuseable if you’ve made up for it with equal amounts of briliance! Doesn’t happen at the Tahs I’m afraid! I’ll still argue all day that pretty much all the Tahs spark comes from Beale! He may suck but at least is threatening and creates opportunities! If he wasn’t there OMG……! Foley is not carrying his load.

      • Custard Taht

        Beale is absolutely gun shy about contact in both attack and defence…..he is soft.

        Beale should be the face of “I can’t believe it’s not butter”.

        • D. Braithwaite’s The Brumbies

          He’s absolutely shy about contact. He doesn’t want to tackle.

        • GO THE Q REDS

          Funnily enough tho…. you look at the stats for the season to date and Beale and Banks have almost identical defensive stats. Innefective tackles, missed tackles and tackle% all very similar! What the stats do show is that Banks is a far more threatening runner and Beale more of a play maker! Banks has made 1 line break assist all year. But double the run metres of Beale! Beale had made alot more offloads and line break assists! Complicated call that one….. For me….. with a real playmaker like Quade on the field I’d have Banks coming off the bench for individual impact instead of Beale.

        • D. Braithwaite’s The Brumbies

          Stats are misleading. Banks might miss about as many tackles, but he is a far better defender positionally, doesn’t shy away from contact and is an excellent cover defender, which Beale is not.

          Banks is about 100 times better in attack than Beale this year. What even is a “line break assist”?

          Banks has also had more than one try assist this season, so am sceptical about Fox Rugby’s stats.

          Of all the back three players Australia has, Banks and DHP are the guys that have to start. The latter is the best under the high ball and positionally and can pass, and Banks is the best attacking runner in space (Kerevi obviously the best in tight).

        • Brisneyland Local

          Dont worry with Cheika as coach, Banks and Cooper will be no where near the squad.

  • dsb

    The touchy saw the foot was in touch and the players also told him. Should have had the flag up. Enjoyed the game even though the Tahs were crap. Non of them deserve to be in the Wobblies and if we get them we will be home early!

    • D. Braithwaite’s The Brumbies

      I reckon it is a close thing between Tupou and Kepu. Tupou’s scrummaging technique could cost the Wallabies in a world cup.

      • GO THE Q REDS

        Agreed and for a WC wouldn’t be too worried with experience being the tie breaker between those two….

      • Zippo

        But on the flip side, Kepu’s discipline could be a worryh

  • Brisneyland Local

    Well just finished watching this one, and am disspointed I wasted my morning watching this instead of going for a ride. Gee that wasnt good.
    – Have to agree with all of the others. Foley is utter shite. His orchestrating of play is barely one dimensional. His defence is worse than an U12 back from the Wagga Wagga D grade. He whinges worse than a little girl ( i have two daughters under 13 so am well versed in this). How the fuck is this our incumbent 10 at his best he is no shade on QC and at his worst he is far worse. Dont get it.
    – BEale looks ok in attack but is barely a speedhump in defence. His defence is actually worse than Foley’s and that is saying something.
    – Hooper has a great motor but had an attack of the Beale in going completely sideways in attack. But his defence is intense.
    – Hannigan actually looked like he belonged out there for once which is a vast improvement.
    – I watched Simmons get smashed by their 10 I think. (Could have been one of the backs, but definitely wasnt a forward).
    – The Tah’s cant make the finals now can they?
    – Pity to see Hunt get hurt. He has been a great pick up for the Tah’s this year.
    Over to you GAGR’s!

    • Brumby Runner

      Just a couple of comments BLL. Hanigan and Simmons are the weakest locking duo in the whole comp. Simmo regularly gets sat on his backside by a back, often one of the smaller ones, while Hanigan has almost zero impact with ball in hand. Neither are test quality and ought not be within cooee of the Wallabies.

      How many games has Hunt contributed to a win? Against the Sunwolves in Japan early in the season when he put Parker off his field goal attempt but to be fair the Sunwolves should have been playing under penalty advantage at the time. KH is one of the many over-rated players in SR this year.

      • D. Braithwaite’s The Brumbies

        I can’t agree about Simmons. He is one of the highest tacklers in all of super rugby, a good broken field runner, one of the best line out exponents in the comp and is always a threat to pass. He’d start in my Wallaby second row alongside Arnold.

        Hanigan loses every contact. If he were a Brumby I don’t think he would even make the bench.

        • Kiwi rugby lover

          Or any other Super Team mate

        • Keith Butler

          A couple of seasons back I thought that Coleman and Arnold would be the lock pairing for years to come but both went off the boil. Arnold has come back and added to his game. Coleman still a work in progress. I’d pick Rodda and Arnold at the moment.

      • Brisneyland Local

        Potentially but in a crap Tah’s side he has looked good.

      • Kiwi rugby lover

        I agree mate, a lot of hype but looks out of his depth and makes some poor choices. Kerevi and TK have to be the starting centres

    • David Creagh

      On the behalf of the Wagga Wagga U12 D grades I demand an apology. Their defence is better than that.

      • Brisneyland Local

        DC, yes, you are correct. I apologise unreservedly.

    • GO THE Q REDS

      That tackle where Simmons got dominated…… I think it’s because he’s been working hard on his running game, therefore running alot more upright into contact so he doesn’t go straight to ground in a tackle. Problem is if they get a dominant contact almost anyone can Tai Chi you to the ground. Been noticing that this year as his running game has improved but has suffered at least a few times like last night! Pros an Cons I spose….

      • Brisneyland Local

        Yep, just looks bad when you are 200cm and 12okgs getting sat on your ass by an 80kg shortass.

  • The Jackal

    Someone tell the Waratahs that Big T Naiyaravoro & he who must not be named are no longer out the back to bail them out from their lateral game plan, which is plan A, B & C.

    On a positive Hanigan & Simmons really showed some grunt and dominated their test opponents physically.

  • Hoss

    It’s Australia rugby’s Achilles heel mate – 10. Best of a poor bunch. Post 2019 who do you see evolving intonour 10. I see a future in Hegarty, but I am excited about Maddocks slotting into 10. Seems a sharp kid, good skills and can tackle.

    • Custard Taht

      Yeah the cupboard looks pretty bare….but the good news is, that Cheika won’t be there to ensure the cupboard remains bare so his favourite remains the starter. We also won’t see other 10 options tried at 10 with Foley at 12, followed with a “told you so” about Foley.

      • Hoss

        Yep, the arguments over whether it’s Spanners, Lilo or The Sunshine band in the 10 are akin to two brothers arguing over the best French kiss they have ever had, their sister, Mum or grandmother. Best of a bad lot.

        • Brumby Runner

          Lealiifano is the dark horse among that lot Hoss. Is getting better as the season goes on and probably most would argue he is presently in better form that either Foley or Quade.

          My hope is that Matt Toomua also gets to be seen at 10. Contrary to the continual spiffle put out by some Tahs fans in order to keep justifying the selection of Foley, Toomua was an excellent No 10 with the Brumbies in years gone by. Nobody really had a strong argument about the better credentials at 10 between Toomua and Lealiifano. Both have better all round games than the pedestrian Foley and the schizophrenic Cooper.

        • Hoss

          Would agree mate. Just a shame we aren’t talking about a Barret v Mounga type selection choice. I wouldn’t feed Spanners let alone pick him. QC has gone downhill the longer the season has gone. Lilo is ok, but again, as Oz rugby fans shield we really ‘settle’ for ok at 10 ? The reality is – yes, but what have we done in 4 years to fix a problem Stevie Wonder could see coming?

        • Kiwi rugby lover

          I wonder if QC is just not getting enough rest. He’s mentioned the jump from club to super a few times now and I think he could do with a rest

          Mate I’m with you in wanting to see Toomua at 10. I remember him there in the past and he was pretty damn good.

      There’s been chat about Maddocks at 10 for a couple of seasons now but sweet fa has happened. If he doesn’t make the RWC squad maybe the Rebs should bite the bullet and start him at 10 in the Rising.

        You watching London 7’s by chance? The joy, spirit and just pure fun the Fijians have reminds even a bitter and twisted ol fuck like me what I love about this game. They are panacea for the soul.

        Bula.

      Not sure about the tackle bit yet but yes love the kid!

    Did ya see the commentators picked Foley to be the one to lead the Tahs to a victory pregame! Must be opposite week again….

  • Brisneyland Local

    Gee that is our Wallabies 10 we are all so admirably bagging! ;-)

  • Bernie Chan

    Now that the Jaguares are in contention for the top spot in their conference, Kearns and some other NSW apologists are saying they shouldn’t be in Super Rugby because they have so many Pumas 13?) in their squad? Not withstanding the Tahs had 10 Wallabies in their squad…

Loved rugby since the day I could remember, got the nickname Footy to show that, I watch Matt Dunning's dropkick every night before going to bed
