Last season, Horacio Agulla (player for Argentine Rugby Union) was one of the top try scorers for Bath Rugby. He is thinking that the stop-start campaign can be ignited by the last weekend’s overdue touchdown.
Agulla dotted down during the Aviva Premiership for around six times last term. However, because of his international duty towards Argentina and his injury, he could not make a seasonal bow until the month of November.
During the Rugby Championship, Agulla performed exceptionally well in a match against the Worcester Warriors, but it was on the 8th of February, 2014 (Saturday) that he was able to boost his try tally.
The Aviva Premiership match between Bath Rugby and Newcastle Falcons took place at the Rec on 8th of February, 2014. Nick Abendanon got injured and therefore Horacio Agulla replaced him on the field. Agulla did not disappoint Bath Rugby at all. He performed really well.
Horacio Agulla was of the opinion that the Bath Rugby team is absolutely superb and competitive, so every time a player gets the opportunity, he ends up performing well only.
Agulla was not expecting to get into the field that early (he entered the field after around 10 minutes), but he thinks such things happen on the field and so players have to be ready to perform at all times.
Along with that, Agulla was not happy that Nick Abendanon got injured. But he was pleased that he got a chance to perform.
Competition in the team has increased because it consists of such good players that it has become difficult to secure a position in the team. But Agulla thinks that this has helped him as he can improve himself and perform in a better way.
Horacio Agulla really hopes that in the future he gets enough game time to boost his try scores.

Rugby Football Union or RFU Championship side the Bedford Blues have completed the signing of Argentina Rugby player Tomas Gilardon Paz.
The 24 year old has finally put pen to a paper to a long term deal with the club based at Goldington Road with the club going the extra mile to complete the complicated paperwork required to get the prop player a work visa to play for the Blues in England as they brought the curtains down on a long drawn transfer saga that could be compared to any soap opera easily.
The player has been signed from San Isidros from his native Buenos Aires and also has three caps for the Argentina Rugby team.
And Mike ayer, the Director of Football of the club is really excited that the club managed to go that extra mile to complete the signing of one of the most sought after players from the Southern Hemisphere.
According to the boss, with the injury to Dan Seal taking longer than expected in the rehabilitation process as well as the return of Nic Auterac to his parent club in the Aviva Premiership Saracens FC, the Blues had just four players in the position and the signing of the Argentine will add strength and depth to the team as well as increase the competition for places, which will no doubt be beneficial for the club in the long run.
Geoff Irvine, the chairman of the club also stated that it is difficult to get good players at this time of the season and their search for a proper player took them to Argentina.
Rayer stated that they knew what kind of player they wanted and things were made easier because he had represented the Argentina Rugby team, otherwise, getting a visa would have bee tough

There have been many changes that have been made to the Argentina Rugby team. Coach Santiago Phelan has made four major changes to the team’s lineup, as the team did very badly against South Africa, when they were playing for the Rugby Championship at Hamilton last weekend. They had lost 22-17, and coach Phelan decided it was high time that some changes were made to the team roster.
Forward Leonardo Senatore is facing a nine-week ban, as he bit another player during a rough encounter on the field. So in his place, Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe will be playing, who is fast recovering from a calf injury. Manuel Carizza will be replacing Mariano Galarza. And on the other hand, hugely experienced player Felipe Contepomi will be making his impact felt from the bench.
Felipe Contepomi is doing really well for the Argentina Rugby team, and the coach feels that he is extremely capable as a skipper, but then, for the betterment of the team on the whole, some rotation was much needed, and changes had to be made to the way things were. According to coach Phelan, the team has really been working hard, and that everyone in the need has put in a lot of effort to get to a better level of performance. And right now, better things can be safely expected from the team.
When asked about losing two of the most important players for charges of biting and eye-gouging, the coach of Argentina rugby team was of the opinion that those were really unfortunate turns of events, and that they hope to play a clean and decent game in the future. The most important thing that the coach wishes for his team is that the players have a good time playing, and that they come out with shining colors.
