Ronan O'Gara's time at the Crusaders has ended with another Super Rugby title.

They've beaten Argentina's Jaguares 19-3 in the final at Christchurch to land a third successive crown.

It was the lowest scoring decider in the history of the competition and the Crusaders now have 10 titles to their name.

Codie Taylor grabbed the game's only try in the 25th-minute with Richie Mo’unga kicking 14-points.

It continued Mo'unga's fine recent scoring record, having notched 23 and 20 points respectively against the Highlanders and Hurricanes in the last few weeks.

Jaguares, who were contesting their first-ever final, had opened the scoring with an early drop-goal from Joaquin Diaz Bonilla.

O'Gara will leave his role as backs coach at the Crusaders to become head-coach at La Rochelle later this month.

Crusaders: 15 David Havili, 14 Sevu Reece, 13 Braydon Ennor, 12 Jack Goodhue, 11 George Bridge, 10 Richie Mo’unga, 9 Bryn Hall, 8 Kieran Read, 7 Matt Todd, 6 Whetukamokamo Douglas, 5 Sam Whitelock (captain), 4 Mitchell Dunshea, 3 Owen Franks, 2 Codie Taylor, 1 Joe Moody.
