Transfer News: Ospreys sign Argentine-back rower
The Ospreys have added to their back-row stocks by signing Argentinian back-rower Guido Volpi.
The back-rower spent a week with the Swansea based region earlier this year where he trained with the senior squad. And his trial with the region has persuaded head coach Allen Clarke to hand him a permanent contract.

The 23-year-old will become the first Argentinian to represent the Ospreys and is their seventh new signing ahead of the 2018/19 season.
“Guido is a fantastic athlete, with size, pace and the ability to offload,” said Rugby General Manager Dan Griffiths.
“He really impressed during his time with us, not only with his physical capabilities, but also his ability to adapt and learn quickly. Our age grade pathway and academy are bringing through some fantastic talent, but Guido will bring something different.
“We are excited to see how he will progress surrounded by quality players and coaching. There is a real excitement and desire within these young men to be a part of the Ospreys.
“We are looking forward to seeing how the blend of quality internationals and hungry young talent can create a vibrant, competitive environment.”
