The New Boys

I read with interest that Saracens have signed promising young Argentinian winger/fullback Tomas de Vedia, for the new season. (Plus a Samoan for the pack).

It sounds like the lad has plenty of pace and, as the Argenitian League's top try scorer last year, hopefully he will be able to contribute quickly and get on the score sheet soon.

I don't have a photo of him, but here are some of his Argentinian compatriots in an image I took during the Lions v Argentina match in Cardiff last May. It shows Pablo Bouza winning a lineout against Martin Corry, plus Danny Grewcock, Federico Méndez, Donncha O'Callaghan and Mariano Sambucetti giving some lift.
