The non-selection of Santiago Fernández by Los Pumas headcoach Daniel Hourcade has been a well documented feature of Argentina's international season thus far in 2014. Left out of the June test squad Fernández has also not been called up for the Rugby Championship. But with Argentina requiring reinforcements to improve its bench Fernández is an ideal option to come into the team as a player covering both fly half and inside centre. He has years of experience in both positions for both Montpellier and Bayonne and scored a first half try in the 12 shift against Oyonnax on Saturday. Bayonne won the match 38-12.
