Horacio Agulla continues good form for Leicester

Horacio Agulla continued his very good season for Leicester against Northampton this weekend.

Agulla who has pushed former All Black Scott Hamilton out of the Leicester team this season, and won two player of the month awards and also been nominated for Leicester player of the season, showed Leicester what they will be missing next season as he is being released by them due to his upcoming international commitments with Argentina.

Against Northampton Agulla set up a try with a chip kick he gathered himself, a skill we have seen more than once this season (he also used it to score against Worcester), and then offloaded to give Alesana Tuilagi a clear run to the try.

After setting up a try, Agulla scored one himself as Leicester passed the ball down the line and Agulla beat the defence of Northampton's Paul Diggin to finish in the corner, Diggin really should have made a better effort in defence but it was still a good finish by Agulla.
