Argentina Hooker Set For Premiership Move

Premiership bound.

Gloucester are close to agreeing a deal for Los Pumas hooker Julian Montoya and he could join before the New Year according to a report by Gloucestershire Live.

Wallabies international James Hanson has been brought in from the Melbourne Rebels to add depth to the hooking department, but is only with the Cherry and Whites on a short-term deal for two months.

Montoya has earned 36 caps for Los Pumas since making his debut in 2014. But has only started four games for Argentina, with Agustin Creevy considered the starting hooker and captain. It’s expected he will join in December as Hanson returns for the Super Rugby season.
