What about Cup games next season? Will he be here for those? Losing your first choice 10 for 8 weeks is incomparible to losing another player for that long.
To people that say we cannot find another Mieres, how many of you had heard of him before we signed him up? Therefore is it not possible that Rob can find another player of that quality in another league? If we are playing HC rugby next season it will be difficult for a fly-half elsewhere to not sign for us.
I think it boils down to money more than anything,the club would receive no compensation from Argentina while he was included in the national squad,the way I read it,I think this was the main stumbling block.
Like you say Heavichief if,and it's still an IF, we were to get into the HC we probably would look attractive to some quality fly half's out there in other leagues, but how many of them are out of contract at the end of the season.
I'm sure Rob will get it sorted.
