Scored: Patricio Fernandez

Argentina Jaguars have won the IRB Americas Rugby Championship courtesy of a bonus-point victory over fellow South Americans Uruguay.

The Jaguars wrapped up the title with a round to spare after the 34-0 triumph in Langford, British Columbia on Tuesday.

The win sees them notch their second bonus-point success, and maintain their perfect record of ten points from a possible ten.

Tries came from full-back Ramiro Moyano, who grabbed a brace, fly-half Patricio Fernandez and centre Juan Cappiello.

Elsewhere, the USA unexpectedly overcame host-side Canada A 30-10, preventing the Canucks from catching the Jaguars at the top of the tournament table.

The final round plays out at Westhills Stadium on Saturday, with the other three teams all in contention for a runners-up spot behind the Argentinian outfit.
