Belisario Agulla set to sign for Agen

23 year old, Belisario Agulla, the younger brother os Los Pumas winger Horacio Agulla is set to play as a professional rugby player in France after he announced on his twitter account that he is to travel to Agen to finish all the bureacratic themes with the French Top 14 club. Belisario Agulla, like Horacio, is a winger who can also play fullback and joins the French top flight from Buenos Aires club side, Hindú. He was part of the 2011 Vodacom Cup winning side, Los Pampas XV and in joining Agen will be playing professional rugby for the first time. Agen is the home of former Argentine international centre, Miguel Avramovic and is to be the new home of Los Pumas tighthead prop, Martín Scelzo. he will be competing for a place in the starting XV against, amongst others, USA international winger Kevin Swiryn.

Belisario Agulla is a former Argentine age-grade player and has also played for Los Jaguares (Argentina A) in the IRB Nations Cup. He has played a total of six international matches for Argentina at test level but has never been able to make the full-strength squad. In his six appearances he has scored five tries - four vs Chile and two vs Uruguay. All appearances were in the South American Champion from 2009-2011 which takes place outside of the IRB test window and as such European based players are not considered. Belisario Agulla´s professional contract continues the exodus of Los Pampas XV players with Maximilano Bustos, Matias Cortese, Agustín Creevy, Mauricio Raúl Guidone, Nicolás Sanchez, Francisco Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro and Joaquín Tuculet all having signed to play the 2011-2012 season in Europe.
