Nicolas De Battista: Cornish Pirates sign Argentine centre
Argentine centre Nicolas De Battista has joined Cornish Pirates ahead of the 2016-17 Championship season.
He has played for Jockey Club de Rosario in his homeland alongside ex-Pirate Alberto Di Bernardo, who recommended him to the Cornish club.
The 25-year-old has represented his country at under-19 and under-20 level.
"Nicolas is not only brave and aggressive but his skill-set compliments how we aim to play this season," said coach Gavin Cattle.
