Jaguares tell reps: Look overseas
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.” -
