Jaguares tell reps: Look overseas

Fiji Sun - - SPORT -

Buenos Aires: Ar­gentina’s rugby union (UAR) has en­cour­aged Jaguares play­ers to take deals overseas amid an un­cer­tain out­look for Su­per Rugby due to the coro­n­avirus pan­demic, cen­tre Jeron­imo de la Fuente told ESPN.

Su­per Rugby has been sus­pended since March and the fu­ture of this year’s competitio­n re­mains in doubt due to travel curbs and bor­der con­trols.

“The UAR ... told us that if (a player) had an of­fer in the fu­ture, to take it to ease the eco­nomic is­sue a lit­tle,” De La Fuente said.

“They told us that if we had any pos­si­bil­ity of em­i­grat­ing that we take it and that the UAR was go­ing to be pre­dis­posed to help us to be able to travel.

“Not that the UAR is go­ing to let all its play­ers go.

“It will try to re­tain a base so that pro­fes­sional rugby re­mains in place, com­pet­ing, and ba­si­cally so that there’s some competitio­n within the coun­try where they can take Jaguares, Cei­bos or Ar­gentina XV.” -
