History[edit]

Club career[edit]

He started his career at Argentine team RC Mendoza.

He turned professional in 2005 and signed for the French Top 14 team Toulon. After just one season at Toulon, he moved to another French team, Agen, where he remained for 3 seasons until he was released in July 2009 due to club's financial problems following their relegation to Pro D2.

He had a short spell back in Mendoza before he signed for South African Super Rugby franchise the Stormers. He played for them during the 2010 Super 14 season, as well as for domestic side Boland Cavaliers in the 2010 Vodacom Cup and 2010 Currie Cup First Division seasons.

At the end of 2010, he returned to France when he joined Biarritz and shortly after moved to Toulouse.

He signed for Bath Rugby on a two-year deal in November 2012.[1]

International career[edit]

In 2003, while still playing in Argentina, he earned a call-up to the Argentina national team, making his debut on 27 April against Paraguay in Montevideo.

He was not initially named to the Argentina squad for the 2007 Rugby World Cup, but was called in for the third-place match against France as a replacement for the injured Mario Ledesma.[2]

In 2012 Eusebio was part of the Pumas team that part in the inaugural, The Rugby Championship.
