I can't believe that some are asking for Contenpomi at fly-half. He was a quite good center, but a calamity at fly-half. In order to succeed against SA, NZ and Aus., Argentina needs to get a creative fly-half that will add more dimensions to their game. Just hoofing the ball and expecting the opposition to spill it is not a viable plan, and against a team like NZ it is lethal. I have yet to see Argentina really playing to win against these countries. This will only happen when they field a back line that is creative in its attack, and keeps the ball in hand.

He must be related to Stephen Ferris as they are both made of glass.

Big loss, but the Pumas will be hungry for this one. I still the Pumas will push the Boks this weekend, provided they can kick their goals...

Looks like it might have to be Ignacio Mieres.. Shame for Exeter with the permiership season due to start very shortly. Hes only played one friendly so far for Exeter (against the Cornish Pirates) and looked good and kicked well.

Massive blow for the pumas,His been so unlucky with injuries a bit like J.Wilinson ,who would have had alot more caps ,and points if he hadnt missed 3 -4yrs because of injury.J.Herandez ,was on the verge of something simalar in 2007,then his injury nightmare started.Pumas might have to change their gameplan now.

...Or they could just bring Contepomi back into the fold. Probably should've been there from the get-go.

Over-reliance on a single group of players - let alone an individual - is a recipe for future failure. Look at England post 2003.

you're right, there is always a problem with Hernadez ...never available, bring back Felipe Contepomi ...

Its funny how this guy has been able to live of his 2007RWC form. Great kicker from out of hand, but just too injury prone.

Argentina should search for another Fly half as Hernandez isn't reliable at all. He only performed great in one world cup and that's it. Bring back Contepomi.
