Nicolás Sánchez became the player with the most test matches with the Los Pumas jersey. The Tucuman played his 90th game against the All Blacks with the Argentine jacket, surpassed Agustín Creevy’s 89 and was placed in the highest position of the historical table.

In addition to Creevy, he had already left behind Felipe Contepomi (87) as well as Juan Manuel Leguizamón (87). Also, he is the top scorer against New Zealand with 151 points, with Hugo Porta being second on the list with 44.
With a career marked by broken brands, the current Stade Français player is also the top scorer of the selected team in their entire history, having marked 833 points (13 tries, 114 conversions, 168 penalties and 12 drops) between international test matches, Rugby Championship and World Cups.
Scorer in England 2015, Sánchez has played 43 games in the Rugby Championship, where he scored 346 goals. In addition, the ten from Tucumán also integrated the World Cup teams of New Zealand 2011 and Japan 2019.
