Los Pampas XV Squad confirmed for Vodacom Cup

Los Pampas XV Captain: Julio Farias
The Subcommittee of High Performance Rugby today confirmed the Los Pampas XV team that will participate in the Vodacom Cup 2012 in South Africa starting on March 9th. The National squad will consist of 30 players and will again be coached by Daniel Hourcade (Head Coach) and Mauricio Reggiardo. Los Pampas XV were crowned champions of the 2011 Vodacom Cup having gone through the campaign undefeated and this year the team will be looking to defend the title. The Argentine team will debut on Friday March 9, at 15:10 (local time) vs the Eastern Province Kings.

The delegation will leave for South Africa on Sunday March 4th, from Ezeiza International Airport in Buenos Aires. Los Pampas XV will be part of the Southern Zone, as was the case in 2010 but not in 2011. The group will also consist of the Eastern Province Kings, the SWD Eagles, the Border Bulldogs, the Boland Cavaliers, DHL Western Province, the Free State Cheetahs and the Toyota Sharks.

The team consists of fourteen players who participated in the 2011 edition of the Vodacom Cup they are: Gabriel Ascarate, Thomas Cubelli, Thomas De la Vega, Julio Farias Cabello, Genaro Fessia, Mariano Galarza, Santiago Gonzalez Iglesias, Santiago Guzman, Martin Landajo, Tomás Leonardi, Roman Miralles, Ramiro Moyano, Roberto Tejerizo and Bruno Postiglioni. Los Pampas XV´ captain will be backrower Julio Farias Cabello, while secondrower Mariano Galarza is the vice-captain. Galarza is one of only three backrowers which suggests that Farías will be used a lot in the secondrow. The two players represented two of the ten players who signed professional contracts with the UAR last week.
