Argentinian international Santiago Cordero is to leave Exeter Chiefs for the Top 14.

The Argentinian international arrived in Devon back in January 2018 on a short-term contract until the end of the season.

The 24-year-old’s impressive form, both in matches and in training, saw him playing his part in guiding the Chiefs to top spot in the Premiership at the end of the 2017/18 season. In May he extended his stay at Chiefs for a further season.

Ranked as the number one right wing in the Premiership by the RugbyPass Index, a lucrative contract in the Top 14 has caught the Argentinian’s eye.

Bordeaux Begles have announced that the wing/fullback has signed on a two-year deal.

A lethal back, either on the wing or at full-back, Cordero has proven at the highest level that he has the quality to unlock opposition defences with his fast feed and lightning quick pace.

With 33 caps and 11 international tries to his name, Cordero is known for his electric footwork and game-breaking ability.
