Gloucester sign Galarza

Argentina Test lock Mariano Galarza will join Gloucester from their Aviva Premiership rivals Worcester next season.

Gloucester have confirmed 27-year-old Galarza's move to Kingsholm. He has won 18 caps and was part of Argentina's 2011 World Cup squad.

"Our search for second-rows has been detailed," Gloucester rugby director Nigel Davies said.

"W e are delighted to have secured Mariano's services, as his qualities will complement the players we already have in place and give us some genuine options in the second row.

"I believe this gives us plenty of strength in depth in a hugely important area of the squad as we seek to establish a powerful forward platform for next season.

"Mariano is an experienced, physical operator and his signing is another statement of intent for us."
