International Rugby: Joaquín Tuculet scores v Ireland

One player in which Daniel Hourcade has invested a lot of time into is Joaquín Tuculet. The former Sale Sharks, Grenoble and Bordeaux-Begles outside back is now back in Argentina full time and is providing Juan Martín Hernández with serious competition for the fullback position. Prior to joining the Sale Sharks Tuculet was Hourcade's leading fullback option for the Pampas XV and now that he is off contract and at the complete disposal of el huevo he is being given the opportunity to shine. Aged 24 Tuculet started both home tests against Ireland this month and was praised by the media for his performances. He finished off a well-workd try from close to Argentina's tryline in Tucumán. Martín Landajo ran from a scrum and after breaking the lien passed to Lucas González Amorosino who came within metres of scoring. Having secured the ruck Argentina passed left, finding Tuculet who darter over to give the South Americans the lead.
