Los Pumas are going to be ok. I think if the result at RWC 2011 is poor they would consider bringing back Marcelo Loffreda after his unceremonious dumping by Leicester a few years back. Super Rugby, as part of SANZAR, will have to accommodate the Argentines with at least two Argentina based teams. It will take a while to get all the NH based players down there and as their contracts begin to expire they'll have to start getting clauses allowing them to play in the 4N sand Autumn tours hould they elect not to head south for Super Rugby. Clearly though the best case scenario for the national team would have the players involved in Super Rugby if for no other reason than location/ease of travel. The poor form of the Johannesburg Lions would leave room for some Argentine mercenaries. Same for Otago and the Melbourne Rebels. It will be a slow process but worth while for Argentine Rugby and I personally look forward to seeing the BI Lions tour Argentina in the not terribly distant future.
