Horacio Agulla wins Try of the Year and Player of the Year at Leicester

Despite not being signed on for an extended contract at the Leicester Tigers, Argentine winger Horacio Agulla is a player on top form and this evening he was honored with two prestigious awards at the club´ End of Season Awards. Agulla was voted in for the biggest prize of the night, winning the supporters player of the year. Earlier he won the award for try of the season for his try vs Northampton. The awards continue his extremely impresseive season which has seen him win the club´ player of the month award twice and score six tries for the club as well as having had a hand in setting up others. No doubt the supporters voting in Agulla will send the management a clear message that they should resign and not lose Agulla to a rival club. The future of Agulla remains unknown. He has told Argentine sources that he does have offers to continue in England or return to France. He is aklso open to the possibility of playing Super Rugby.

Agulla has been at the club for two seasons now but has not been offered an extended contract due to the players certain involvement in The Rugby Championship for Los Pumas. The UAR have been trying to reach an agreement with the Leicester Tigers and have been doing the same thing with other clubs who have Pumas players. Thus far nothing has been confirmed despite prop Marcos Ayerza having his contract extended until 2015.
