Profile

Carballo made his debut for the Pumas against Canada on July 2, 2005 and toured South Africa, France, Ireland and Italy with Argentina in 2008.

He began his career with the Alumni Club in Buenos Aires before opting for a move to France where he first played for Toulon during the 2004-05 season. He switched to Castres for the 2005-06 before returning to Toulon but was back at Stade Pierre-Antoine for the 2006-07 season.

He left Castres at the end of an injury-blighted 2008-09 season and headed back to Argentina where he has since been linked with Alumni.
