Biography

Educated at the Maristas Primary and Secondary Schools in Rosario, and later studying Law at the city’s University, on the rugby field Nicolas’s talent saw him represent his country as a ‘Pumita’ at both under 19 and under 20s level.

Prior to signing for the Cornish Pirates in June, 2016, Nicolas had proudly played all of his rugby for Jockey Club de Rosario, where former Pirates star Alberto Di Bernardo plays. Nicolas was a first team regular from 2011, and in 2014 he not only captained his club but was also skipper of the Rosario Regional Team.

Two of Nicolas’s brothers have played for Jockey Club de Rosario, whilst he himself is also an accomplished 7-a-side performer, who has represented the Rosario ‘Sevens’ team.

As for hobbies, Nicolas loves it in the kitchen – though happily admitting that he is not a great cook!

In his first 2016-17 season with the Cornish Pirates, Nicolas made quite an impression as a solid midfield performer. He featured in 25 games and was at the end honoured to receive both the ‘Player of the Year’ and the ‘Players’ Player of the Year’ awards.
