Figallo receives Argentina call-up
Juan Figallo has been called up by Argentina for Los Pumas’ opening two fixtures of the 2018 Rugby Championship.
The tighthead prop will be in contention for Mario Ledesma’s side’s matches against South Africa on 18th and 25th August before returning to Saracens for the beginning of the Gallagher Premiership Rugby season.
Head coach Ledesma brought an end to Argentina’s blockade on selecting European-based players by adding Figallo to his squad.
The 30-year-old, who has 24 caps for his country, last represented Argentina at the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
