Edinburgh have announced that Argentina international Emiliano Boffelli has signed a new two-year contract with the Scottish regional club.

Boffelli joined Edinburgh in 2021 and on his maiden season with the club he racked up 172 points from 18 matches. He was named Edinburgh’s Players’ Player of the Year on his first campaign. He also had represented Jaguares and Racing 92 in the past.

He also has been prolific for Argentina this year and has been the leading points scorer with 146 points.

Boffelli was this month rewarded for his fine form at international level by being awarded the Silver Olimpia Award in Argentina, voted by for sports journalists and given to the country’s top rugby performer.

“I am very happy to continue with Edinburgh – it is a club that has helped me smile again and enjoy what I love to do the most, which is playing rugby," he told the club's official website.

“From the first day I arrived, my teammates, coaches, fans and all the people that work at the club made me feel right at home.

“I am really fascinated by the city. Although it is much colder than Rosario, my home Argentine city, I feel that I am getting used to it and finding its charm. Little by little, with my girlfriend, we feel that we are establishing ourselves and enjoying this beautiful city.”
