Profile

Martin Scelzo was well established at Clermont Auvergne but has announced he will join Top 14 rivals Agen for the 2011-12 season.

The prop has played at three previous World Cups - 1999, 2003 and 2007 - and will add to his tally having been named in the Pumas squad for the 2011 showpiece.

Having made his debut for Argentina against the US Eagles in September 1996, he has managed to accrue 53 caps. His impressive form on the international level led to Northampton Saints signing him in 2001.
