    A big blow, very big. Galindo is out too. The PladAR system will be used to replace these players.

    Darn it. This is a huge blow indeed. Perhaps Fernandez Lobbe will switch to openside flanker, with one player from the PlaDAR covering #8?

    Yes, he won't play again before December. He cannot be replaced.

    Agustín Guzman, Leonardo Senatore, Dino Caceres and Rodrigo Bruno are probably the Jaguars players covering 6 and 7.

    If Fernandez Lobbe does play 7 then there are a few options for 8 such as:

    - Leonardo Senatore got a try today for Jaguars vs USA 'XV'.
    - Agustín Costa Repetto got a try today in the European Challenge Cup (Padova vs Newcastle)

    However, I think Argentina will field:

    8 Fernandez Lobbe (Toulon)
    7 Alejandro Campos (Montauban)
    6 Genaro Fessia (Cordoba)

    At least problems from November 2008 should not repeat themselves when Leguizamon missed the tests vs France and Italy.

    Carlos Cáceres and Mariano Galarza both played well today for the Jaguars. They may both be prefered to Esteban Lozada who is not getting much game time for Toulon.

    Problems in the back three are no more with Agulla, Bosch, Camacho and Borges all getting good game time for leading European clubs. Others too like Gauthier, Stortoni and Acuna playing a lot too. Amorisino is supposed to debut for Leicester on Sunday.

    Agustin Figuerola played very well today for CASI.
