Pumas Forward Bruni Pens French Second Division Deal

Paris, Dec 30 (AFP/APP): Argentine back-rower Rodrigo Bruni, who played in the Pumas’ stunning triumph over the All Blacks last month, on Wednesday signed a deal to play for French second-tier outfit Vannes.

The 27-year-old featured in the 25-15 win over New Zealand in the Rugby Championship — Argentina’s first over the former world champions — as well as credible draws against the Wallabies. He had been playing for Argentina’s Jaguares in Super Rugby but with that tournament shelved due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Bruni has instead signed a one-year deal with the Pro D2 side.

“The problematic situation at the moment with the Jaguares made this move possible,” said Vannes manager Jean-Noel Spitzer. “It’s an incredible opportunity to welcome such a player to the club.” Vannes, based in the Brittany region of north-west France, are currently second in Pro D2 behind Perpignan.
