get a photo up of he damage.
there are alternate modifications that can be made to save the engine with damaged mounting boss' but a photo would help identify if your that lucky.

if the damage is limited to the rear boss' then an adaptor plate could be made to spread the load to other boss' around the back. no welding necessary. welding will require engine out and possibly a strip depending on extent of damage. perhaps an adapted mount could be formed to minimise cost? Unless you are happy to spend the dosh doing it right.
Cheers

the motor is already pulled out of the GTI and ready to take to the welders tomorrow to see what he says, if he cant weld it ill see if we could make up an adapter type thing and maybe that will work :)

Looks to me like you didn't have the two bolts that go into the Gearbox
Most common mistake when changing a gearbox or something.

You had the whole back weight of the engine on the two bolts that bolt to the block where it has snapped
