Perpignan continues to strengthen itself for its return to the Top 14. Joaquín Oviedo will play in the newly promoted team, in what will be his first experience abroad for the third row after his great time at Jaguares XV.
The 20-year-old forward came from Córdoba Athletic and played in the last American Rugby Super League with the team led by Ignacio Fernández Lobbe. In turn, he was already present on the Los Pumas tour of Oceania when the Three Nations was played, but did not add minutes. Arriving at French rugby will live his first adventure in professional rugby.
Oviedo will become the fifth Argentine player in the Perpignan squad. He will join the arrivals of Martín Landajo and Bautista Delguy and Patricio Fernández and Jerónimo De La Fuente, who were already on the squad and were promoted last season.
