Leguizamón, originally from Santiago, Argentina, is one of the most decorated Argentinian rugby union players of all time. Leguizamón debuted for Los Pumas in 2005 against Japan and laid the foundation for a 14-year career with his country. As the second highest capped Pumas with 87 appearances, Leguizamón played in four, consecutive Rugby World Cups in 2007, 2011, 2015, and 2019, captained the team three times, and scored 13 tries. On the club side of his game, Leguizamón has played for some of the top teams in the world including London Irish (2005-8), Stade Français (2008-11), Lyon OU (2011-15), and Jaguares of Super Rugby (2015-2019). With such a consistent career against top competition, the 6’3, back row forward will raise the standard of the Seawolves’ open field play with his smart, strong running lines and monstrous moments in contact in the Seawolves forward pack.
