Agulla selected for Argentina’s Rugby World Cup squad

17 August 2015

Bath Rugby winger Horacio Agulla has been selected in Argentina's 31-man Rugby World Cup squad.

The Pumas face Georgia, Namibia, Tonga and current World Champions New Zealand in Group C of the tournament, with their first game against the All Blacks on September 20th.

Pumas coach Daniel Hourcade said: "Players got left out that didn't deserve it, it's unfair really but that's how it is.

"They did everything we asked of them, a great effort and they gave their all. It is the hardest moment of all for a coach but we had to choose only 31 players.

"It's a balanced list with 17 forwards and 14 backs that gives us the possibility of having two teams and one more front row forward."
