Tomás Lavanini (born 22 January 1993) is an Argentine rugby union Rugbyplayer who plays as a second row, currently with the Argentine Super Rugby side Jaguares. Before joining the Jaguares, he had played the 2014–15 French season with Racing Métro (now known as Racing 92).[1][2][3]

International career[edit]

He represented Argentina Under 20 in the 2013 IRB Junior World Championship.[4]

He made his senior debut for Los Pumas against Uruguay in April 2013 and was subsequently called into the squad for the 2013 Rugby Championship as injury cover for Manuel Carizza[5] where he made his championship debut as a 74th-minute substitute in his side's 17-22 defeat to South Africa on 24 August.[6]

Tomás was part of the national team that competed at the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Lavanini was red-carded in the second test against South Africa in the 2017 Rugby Championship, following two yellow cards being issued to him. Lavanini made his return from suspension at home against New Zealand in Buenos Aires only to be yellow-carded for a dangerous tackle.[citation needed]
