I can only assume there must still be visa issues or by the time he quarantines it is not worth him travelling, if this statement is true. Chris E mentioned it on Twitter yesterday.
Argentina have said they will use home based players for the South American competition so until the extended international window starts at the end of October he should be available for Tigers.

The delay would indeed be because of the proposed Rugby Championship - due to be played in NZ. Authorities in SA have already said that their team may not take part and Covid-19 outbreaks like the one in Australia may have a part to play in whether the tournament goes ahead, I guess.

And wasn't expected until recently, and is still likely to miss a lot of upcoming games ?

Man down the pub said do, but these things often change quickly. It would be nice for Pumas not to call him up, or even not to play ant games...

In terms of the isolation period he'll miss the first three games. (i.e. he is out of isolation on 27th August)

Depends what shape he is in whether he can drop straight back in after that or not. I'd imagine he has been training hard but obviously no contact and solo training is never the same, so at least another couple of weeks you'd think.

Personally I'd only have him as an outside bet for an Argentina squad at the moment. Certainly should be his target medium term though.
