Awesome news! All we need now is to wait for both unions to arrange the last details and announce it in a press conference. The Jaguars are going to partake in one of the most important competitions in South Africa: the Vodacom Cup. Argentina would be based in Cape Town, and their "home" games would be hosted at the Danie Craven Stadium in Stellenbosch. Namibia might also be able to field in an extra team to strengthen the tournament. This is of course huge for Argentine Rugby -- right now the SARU and the UAR are considering the feasibility of getting one of the semifinal games hosted in Argentina, regardless of whether the Jaguars make it to that stage. Being able to welcome players from South Africa and Namibia will boost the sport down here, and we'll probably get full houses in, let's say... VÃ©lez SÃ¡rsfield, ChÃ¢teau Carreras or maybe in "El Gigante de Arroyito". As if that was not enough, the fact that the Jaguars will get decent game time and a regular competition against South African teams might help them stay in Argentina. This will also make easier for Los Pumas to get in touch with the Super 14, now that there are solid chances of having an Argentine franchise in the foreseeable future. There is a serious setback that might hinder this from coming into fruition, though: some people in the UAR are reluctant to let the players involved in the Jaguars AND the PlaDAR play their trade down at the local clubs agglomerated within the URBA and the rest of the provincial unions. You know, this goes back to the Amateurism vs Professionalism debate that has been going on forever in Argentina. I'll keep you guys updated. Article here (in Spanish).
