Leandro Cedaro - Future Puma to play in the Top 14?

After playing 50 matches for Mont de Marsan in France´s second division (Pro d2) young Argentine secondrower, Leandro Cedaro has signed a contract for rival club La Rochelle.  The Atlantic club is sitting in second position in the Pro d2 and is virtually certain to make the Semi Finals. With Grenoble already having won promotion to next seasons Top 14, the winner of the Pro d2 will be the second team entering France´s elite rugby competition. Aside from La Rochelle the other sides who look like making up the Semi Finalists, for finishing second - fifth in the Pro d2 regular season are Dax, Pau and Carcassonne. Mont de Marsan and Albi could also qualify potentially. Should La Rochelle win promotion Cedaro would find himself playing Top 14 rugby, an ideal situation for a player looking to break into intenrnational rugby. Carcassonne could have a future Pumas next season too with Alejandro Nazur set to join the club.

Cedaro´s future could well see him playing for Argentina as he has been in contact with Santiago Phelan. Standing at 1,95 metres tall and weighing 122KG Cedaro has the physique to be an international rugby player. The coming weeks will confirm whether he, indeed, has a chance of being a Puma. Such is the nail-bitting times for the 24 year old who could realize two dreams simultaneously - playing in the Top 14 and playing for Los Pumas.
