Stortoni To Face Scotland

ImageGlasgow Warriors fullback, Bernardo Stortoni, has been named in Argentina's 24-man squad for the first Test against Scotland next month.

Stortoni, who is affectionately known as Bernie, made a notable achievement this year by playing in every one of the Warriors games and was Glasgow's Players' Player of the Year.

In further good news for Warriors supporters, Stortoni will be in Glasgow colours for another two years having extended his contract back in April.

The Pumas meet Scotland at Rosario's Estadio Gigante de Arroyito on June 7 before their second Test at Velez Sarsfield's Jose Amalfitani stadium in Buenos Aires one week later.

The Pumas follow up their two-Test series against Scotland with a clash against Italy in Cordoba on June 28.
