Joaquin Tuculet: Will play in the Top 14 with Grenoble
Grenoble have snapped up Argentina full-back Joaquin Tuculet on a two-year deal.
The 22-year-old Tuculet joins the newly-promoted Top 14 outfit after spending the past season at Sale.
Tuculet, who can also play in the centres and at fly-half, made 16 appearances in all competitions for the Sharks having joined them from Argentine champions Los Pampas.
He has played at two IRB Junior World Championships and for the Argentina Jaguars in the IRB Nations Cup. However he is on the verge of winning a full cap after being included in the Pumas squad for the June internationals.
Tuculet wrote on Twitter: "I'm a new player of Grenoble, I appreciate the support of the Sale fans, I had a great time."
