Argentine Hooker Remaining in France Until 2020

Argentine hooker Agustín Costa Repetto is remaining in France until 2020. The 35-year-old has signed a new contract with Colomiers in the Pro D2. An official announced has been made from the club.

Costa Repetto’s new deal likely means he will finish his career at the club. He joined Colomiers from former Pro D2 side Tarbes. Fellow former Pumas Sebastian Poet is also at the club.

Costa Repetto has three test caps to his name. All of his appearances came well over a decade ago. He was the starting hooker for Los Pumas against Chile and Uruguay in the 2005 South American Championship in May. Later that year he faced Samoa in Buenos Aires.

Colomiers have used Costa Repetto throughout the 2017-2018 season. He has been a constant for the side currently sitting in 6th position. This weekend the club will have home advantage against Narbonne.  The 2005 Puma has been named to start the match.
