    2018-01-19 21:14

    London - Young Argentina prop Facundo Gigena joined English Premiership side Leicester Tigers on Friday.

    The 23-year-old - who has one cap for the senior Pumas side having also played for the Under-20 and Under-23 teams at their respective world championships - previously played for the Buenos Aires-based Super Rugby franchise Jaguares.

    "Facundo scrummages well and he is a young man with a lot of physical and technical growth to come," said Tigers head coach Matt O'Connor.

    "We think he'll add a bit of depth to our options and we hope he can become a big part of this place going forward."

    The Tigers are eighth in the Premiership and have won only one of their last eight games in all competitions.
