|Agulla scores vs Newcastle|
While the professional future of Horacio Agulla remains in clouds, the man himself is not letting it get to him as he continues to do what matters most - deliver well on the field for the Leicester Tigers. The clubs boss, Richard Cockerill had said the club will be cutting ties with Agulla. Since this occured, in late January the threats have not gone away but have decreased as the UAR has been having talks with English and French clubs over players' contracts and availability for the international season. The saga has not really impacted on Agulla on the field as he has held onto the starting position with the 14 shirt being his permanently. Before the issue started, he had already won player of the month for the club in December and since then he has been able to continue in similar form. He has scored more tries and has been looking better than at any other time in his professional career.
Last weekend Agulla played again the 14 shirt and was one of his teams tryscorers. After linking with teammates, Agulla did very well, showing good pace, to find his way to the try line. With Los Pumas in mind, Agulla is on track to add to his 34 international caps. He has solid competition from Pumas players in France which suggests this season could see Argentina with added firepower.
