The Argentine contingent of the Top 14 will be able to count on a new element. Racing 92 formalized the arrival of Emiliano Boffelli from January. Another Argentinian player could soon change tune. At the end of his contract with Castres, Benjamin Urdapilletta is announced in Perpignan for next season.
In French rugby, the Argentinian sector is still as prosperous. A new rugby player from South America will land in the Top 14 in January: Emiliano Boffelli. The 25-year-old has signed up with Racing 92 and will join the Ile-de-France ranks in January. The news was made official on Tuesday by the club. This versatile full-back took part in the last World Cup with the Pumas. On the international scene, the native of Rosario has 31 caps on his counter. For the past four seasons, he has played in the Super League with the Jaguares. With him, Racing 92 is strengthening its rear base a little more in anticipation of the deadlines to come. At La Défense Arena, he will meet his compatriot Juan Imhoff.

Emiliano Boffelli is not the only Argentine player to prepare for a transfer. Benjamin Urdapilleta is announced in Perpignan by our colleagues from Olympic noon. The 34-year-old full-back is coming to the end of his contract at Castres and could sign up with the current leader of Pro D2. In Catalonia, the native of Buenos Aires could know his third French club after Castres where he was champion of France in 2018 and Oyonnax. The one who took part in the 2019 World Cup also played at the Harlequins after an experience in Argentina with the Pampas XV, a club which also saw Emiliano Boffelli pass. At USAP, an agreement has reportedly been reached for the next two seasons. The South American could find his compatriot Jeronimo De La Fuente there. One more proof that Argentinian players still have a bright future ahead of them in France.
