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.
