Nicolás Sánchez extends contract with Bordeaux-Bégles

Sánchez signs for two more years
It seems the negative scenario being painted towards Pumas players in Europe is not what it was thought to be. Key teams such as the Leicester Tigers have said that they no longer want Pumas players in their squads due to the late finish to The Rugby Championship which will mean that players will miss the pre-season and more than a month of action at the start of the club season. The Tigers said they won´t be resigning Horacio Agulla but the player in question has since said that negotiations with the club have not finished and he could therefore stay at Leicester. He could also move to a different club and despite not saying which clubs are interested he has been in contact with others. An additional example is Juan Martín Hernández who is on the radar of Stade Français to return there while Racing Métro are also interested in his signature as are New Zealand Super Rugby side, the Blues.

While a number of high-profile Pumas are locked into long term contracts such as Patricio Albacete with Toulouse, Juan Fernández Lobbe with Toulon and Marcos Ayerza with Leicester the lattest player to secure his future in Europe has only played three times for Argentina and two of these caps were against South American opposition. 23 year old flyhalf, Nicólas Sánchez has signed a new contract for two years with Bordeaux-Bégles. The club announced the signing on Monday. The Tucuman player told Argentine site scrum that This is what I wanted and it took place despite the player being sidelined and out of action for another five weeks.
