Bath Rugby's newest signing, Horacio Agulla, has been named as part of Argentina's 33 man training squad for The Rugby Championship ahead of their opening game of the tournament against South Africa.
The squad are currently training in Florida, and includes Juan Martin Hernandez, Gonzalo Camacho, Marcos Ayerza and Rodrigo Roncero, with Second Row Patricio Albacete captaining the side.
Albacete knows that taking on the Southern Hemisphere trio of New Zealand, South Africa and Australia will be tough, but his squad are looking forward to the challenge.
"The Rugby Championship is going to be very tough. We are going to play against the best three teams in the world but it is the only way for us to make progress.
"To achieve a good result we are going to have to be perfect every weekend and we will see how many consecutive perfect games we can play. Hopefully we can play some great rugby, especially with the addition of Graham Henry, who is going to contribute so much to our campaign."
