The third line Juan Manuel Leguizamón had to operate on a knee injury after his Major League Rugby debut with Rugby United in New York.
For the eighth week of the MLR, in the duel that his team faced against LA Giltinis, the Bronze Puma had its debut in the local team. However, the experienced Argentine player was unable to finish the first forty minutes.
At the half hour of the first half, the former Los Pumas forward received the departure of LA Giltinis and a rival player rammed him hard, which caused the fall of the eighth, which put pressure on his knee and it was there when he caused the injury. Leguizamón had to be assisted by medical personnel to leave the field and then it was found that he had to be operated on in the area of the injury.
In his Instagram account, the forward left a message after the surgery: “Photo from Tuesday, just before the knee operation I had. The blow was hard after preparing and waiting so long for that return to the competition. But good… There is not much more to say. Now to screw it up to come back better. Thanks to all who wrote to me with spectacular words of support. “
