Leonelli and Glasgow part company

Glasgow Warriors have announced that they have terminated the contract of Argentina fullback Francisco Leonelli by mutual agreement.

Leonelli, who joined the Warriors from Edinburgh for the start of season 2006/07, made only five appearances for Glasgow last season and leaves the club with immediate effect.

The news completes a bad week for the flyer – he was also excluded from Argentina’s Rugby World Cup squad after failing to recover from a persistent groin injury.

The 29-year-old, who suspended his law studies in order to pursue his rugby career in Europe, must now reassess his options.

Leonelli made his debut for the Pumas against Uruguay in 2001 and has, to date, 14 Test caps and seven tries to his name.
