One day after having been named by Daniel Hourcade in Argentina's thirty man training squad for the Rugby Championship the playing future of Tomás Lavanini has been secured. Rather than staying at home in Argentina at the completion of the Southern Hemisphere's premier tournament Lavanini will be on a plane to France to begin his professional career.
Aged just 21 Lavanini has quickly established himself as one of Argentina's leading plauers for the future. Since making his test debut against Uruguay in April 2013 Lavanini has made ten appearances too date for his country, scoring a try in his second international against Brazil. He joins the French club from Hindú in Buenos Aires and from the Pampas XV.
With the controversial non-selection of Toulouse veteran Patricio Albacete Lavanini is one of Argentina's leading contenders for the Pumas 5 shirt in the Rugby Championship. Joining him as second-row squad members are Matías Alemanno and Mariano Galarza while Manuel Carizza of the Stormers is expected to link up with the team at the completion of the Super Rugby season.
