Rebels should be looking to Argentina
I read with dismay a press report in which it was asserted that the Melbourne Rebel’s talent scouts where not considering Argetenian players because all the good ones were already in Europe.
Santiago Fernandez – not to be confused with the Mexico City FC striker – has played for the Pumas, and played well, and still hasn’t moved to Europe. He’s probably still under 25.
And he does more than kick.
Can someone please get hold of his CV and put it in front of Rod McQueen and John Connolly? He could be the next Hugo Porta, but half as good would do. They need to move fast or he is going to the RSA.
They could do worse than give him a shot.
