Former Argentina ‘Sevens’ star Nicolas, who played in the World 7s Series for Argentina in both 2014 and 2015, signed for us in June 2017 from Lazio Rugby 127 in Italy.

He has also played for Club Atletico Estudiantes in Parana, for Duendes in Rosario, and then Bathco Rugby Club in Spain before spending last season with Lazio.

Although born in Barcelona, he learned the game and played most of his rugby in Argentina. His father encouraged him to play when he was six or seven years of age, however it was basketball that took young Nico’s focus until mid-teens.

With an interest in rugby rekindled, he played in the back-row before moving into the backs and developing as a very useful centre or wing.

His studies have focused on Sports Training and he has attended both the Siglo XXI College Argentina, and The University European of the Atlantic in Spain. 

Nico’s father Jorge was also a fine player who has been involved in rugby all his life. He not only represented Club Atletico Estudiantes and also regional teams in Argentina, but also played in Spain with UE Santboiana.
