Just one day after Argentine inside centre Santiago Fernández confirmed he had signed a new two-year agreement to remain at Bayonne Argentina has had another senior player confirmed that he will be remaining in France after the World Cup. Like Fernández, Juan Imhoff will not be returning to Argentina to play Super Rugby. The Argentine franchise is also confirmed as being without Patricio Albacete, Marcos Ayerza and Juan Martín Fernández Lobbe.
Imhoff joined Racing Métro in 2011 as a medical joker. He had impressed playing for the Pampas XV in that year's Vodacom Cup and had earned a place in Santiago Phelan's Rugby World Cup 2011 squad. Imhoff was selected ahead of Fernández's then Montpellier teammate, Martín Bustos Moyano, who had been instrumental in seeing the club reach the Top 14 final for the first time ever and only time too date.
Imhoff started for Racing Métro last night in the club's 16-6 loss against Toulon in Lille. He was joined by Juan Martín Hernández in the starting back-three. Both players are expected to miss out on representign Argentina next month due to them instead appearing in the Rugby Championship.
