Gonzalo Camacho´s first Chiefs Try

Camacho celebrates
Gonzalo Camacho is a man playing well for the Exeter Chiefs in England. Despite England´s controversial rule of limiting the number of foreigners in the starting lineup for teams in the Aviva Premiership, the Pumas pair of Camacho and flyhalf Ignacio Mieres have both been first choice players for the club. The pair have been regulars for the South-Western English club and have seen the team become increasingly competitive as it is to play in this weekends Amlin Challegne Cup at the Quarter Finals stage and sits comfortably in fifth place  in the Aviva Premiership. The club is virtually guaranteed of an historical place in next seasons Heineken Cup while traditional powerhouses are to miss out. Behind the Chiefs are sides who have been strong in England, and Europe over the past decade such as as Bath, Gloucester, London Wasps, Newcastle Falcons, Sale Sharks and this past weekends victims, London Irish. 

Exeter´s seven point win came with both Mieres and Camacho contributing to the scoring. Mieres did not have the best afternoons but, nevertheless, landed some goals. Camacho scored his first try for the club since his Post-World Cup arrival. It could not have come at a better time as Camacho´s Pumas number 14 shirt is under threat from the well performing pair of Juan Imhoff and Martín Bustos Moyano. Both alongside established players Horacio Agulla and Lucas González Amorosino have been playing very well in Europe this season. It gives Argentina plenty of options and Camacho´s try this past weekend will have eased the pressure being put on him by other Argentine outside backs.
