Rugby World Cup 2015 is set to be the third Rugby World Cup for Argentine utility Juan Martín Hernández. It, however, ought to be his fourth. Having played in Australia 2003 as a fullback and France 2007 as a fly half Hernández was badly injured playing in the Top 14 in 2011 which saw him requiring knee reconstruction surgery and, consequently, he missed out on playing in New Zealand 2011. Set to face Italy today at fly half Hernández is on track to play in a third Rugby World Cup as Argentina face Georgia, Namibia, New Zealand and Tonga in England 2015. His first try in a World Cup game was against Romania in 2003 where he scored a double. His opening try came in the 29th minute as he linked with fly half Juan de la Cruz Fernández Miranda to score hi team's second try of the match. Argentina won 50-3 but would face Ireland just four days later in Adelaide.
