Hernandez has played in Paris for most of his rugby career as he played for Stade Francais for six years between 2003 and 2009 but L’Equipe say that he is going home.

Argentina will get a Super Rugby franchise is 2016 and Hernandez is highly likely to get some involvement for them but in the meantime he will play in the Rugby Championship, the November Internationals as well as Argentine domestic rugby.

Hernandez has been linked to his former club Stade Francais who have a space for a short term medical joker as Hugo Bonneval is injured.

Racing have signed Ireland, British and Irish Lions flyhalf Jonathan Sexton as well as Springbok No.10 Johan Goosen who joined the club from the Cheetahs earlier this week.
