Transfer News: Exeter Chiefs add Argentina international

Exeter Chiefs have bolstered their squad with the signing of Argentinian prop Enrique Pieretto until the end of the season.

Chiefs’ Director of Rugby, Rob Baxter, has moved swiftly to capture the 24-year-old forward following injuries to fellow tight-heads Tomas Francis and Greg Holmes.

Francis suffered a serious shoulder injury during Wales’ Rugby World Cup semi-final against South Africa in Japan and is now likely to be sidelined for up to four months following surgery.

Holmes, meanwhile, has been out of action with a troublesome Achilles injury since Exeter’s Premiership Rugby Cup game at Leicester Tigers back in September – and he too is not expected to return until the New Year.
