The Cornish Pirates can confirm that their Barcelona-born, former Argentine Sevens international player Nicolas Coronel, aged 26, is departing to join former club Lazio Rugby.
Injuries disrupted Nico’s year in Cornwall, during which the centre/wing made 15 appearances and scored two tries.
Coach Gavin Cattle commented:
It’s been a frustrating year for Nico, who is a big physical specimen but just had a series of unfortunate injuries.
We wish him all the best for the future.
Prior to his departure, Nico also said:
To all in the Pirates family I am really grateful for the experience gained during my time in Cornwall, which has helped me grow as a person.
I am returning to Rome to play for my former club Lazio, where I will strive to implement the good things that I have learned and also try to find a place in the Italian Sevens team.
Following votes cast to nominated Cornish Pirates players for St. Austell’ Brewery’s ‘Tribute’ Player of the Month for October, Kyle Moyle has been declared the winner.
