Francisco Minervino was introduced as a new player for Lyons de Piacenza

Sitav Rugby Lyons welcomed Francisco Minervino, a 22-year-old pillar emerged in Luján Rugby. The cast of Piacenza disputes the Top 12 of the league of Italy.

“The acquisition of Minervino has both technical and numerical reasons: unfortunately our Enrico Cafaro had to undergo an operation in December for shoulder surgery, leaving a significant ‘hole’ in the first line,” said Sitav Rugby Sporting Director Lyons Stefano Nucci.

What’s more, Nucci he highly praised the first line that had its passage through Argentine national teams: “We got in touch with Francisco Minervino that responds to our needs: a young player, who can still grow in our team, but who already has important experiences and who can make an immediate contribution. His physical abilities are remarkable, and in a department like ours, where young and experienced elements work very well together, he can grow up to be a major player. Another important feature is its flexibility: it can also be implemented as a right pillar, role in which it trained before being transferred to the left in the youth teams, providing different solutions to our coaching staff. In addition, he knows Santiago Portillo very well for sharing the pitch with Argentina XV in 2020, and he has faced our other Argentine players in the SuperLiga: that is an advantage so that he can immediately settle in our group, which has been the force so far. of our team. “
