Belisario Agulla has 11 caps for Argentina

Argentina utility back Belisario Agulla has joined Newcastle Falcons after ending his spell with French Top 14 side Agen.

The 27-year-old, who has 11 caps, can play anywhere across the back three and in the centres and is the brother of Bath winger Horacio.

He joins compatriots Juan Pablo Socino and Gonzalo Tiesi at Kingston Park.

"Belisario is a talented, fast and dynamic player," Falcons director of rugby Dean Richards said.

"We're certain he will suit our pitch and will complement our existing group of players."

Agulla has scored seven international tries for the Pumas, but has not appeared for them since a game against Georgia 2013.
