Emiliano Boffelli highlighted how important he will be to Edinburgh Rugby’s Heineken Champions Cup hopes with a prolific display in Argentina’s 30-29 win over England in the Autumn Nations Series on Sunday.
The utility back, who has notched 63 points in EPCR competitions, amassed 25 at Twickenham Stadium with Los Pumas’ first try, six penalties and a conversion as the visitors registered their first triumph at English rugby headquarters in 16 years.
Saracens back Owen Farrell was at the forefront of England’s efforts, kicking five penalties and converting two tries, the latter of which was scored by Leicester Tigers scrum-half Jack van Poortvliet.
That try put England back in contention after Argentina registered two quickfire tries after the break, with Boffelli sliding over in the corner to finish a slick backs move, before Gloucester Rugby back Santiago Carreras pounced on an error in midfield to race in.
However, Edinburgh talisman Boffelli added two further penalties to seal a famous win.
