Connacht have announced the signing of Argentina winger Santiago Cordero from Bordeaux-Begles.
One of the most exciting full-back/wingers in world rugby, Cordero joins from Bordeaux Begles where he has scored 29 tries in 67 appearances for the club across four seasons.
Prior to his move to France, Cordero spent two seasons with the Exeter Chiefs. He scored 10 tries in 33 appearances, was a winner of the Gallagher Premiership Player of the Month award, and was nominated for the prestigious RPA Player of the Year award in 2019.
On the international scene, the 29-year old has made 45 appearances for Argentina. His performances at the 2015 Rugby World Cup earned him significant plaudits across the world, helping his native country to a 4th place finish in the tournament. He beat 31 defenders, more than any other player in the tournament, and also came 2nd in clean breaks and 3rd in metres run.
