Leeds Career

Argentinean prop Juan Gomez joined Leeds Carnegie in the 2008-09 season originally on loan from Irish side Leinster. After helping Leeds secure promotion to the top flight during that first campaign he made the move to Yorkshire permanent and ahead of the 2010-11 season the Argentine international signed a new two year contract with the club.

In his debut campaign at Headingley Carnegie he made 8 starts and 4 replacement appearances, including the National Trophy Final at Twickenham, and scored his first try for the club in the 66-0 win over Sedgley Park.

During the 2009-10 season Juan established himself as a first team regular, making 18 starts and 3 appearances as replacement and scored his second try for the team in the away fixture against Northampton Saints. His performances earned him a call up to the full Argentina squad, however he missed out on playing for the national side due to a calf injury.

Rugby Career

Before joining Leeds Juan played for Irish provincial side Leinster. He made his Test debut for Argentina in 2006 in the 23-16 win against Italy in Rome and has since made a further 3 appearances for the Pumas.

In the summer of 2008 he appeared for the Pumas as a replacement in both tests against Scotland and his form for Leeds Carnegie last season earned him a recall to the team for the Churchill Cup campaign, where he played in the Plate Final, which the Jaguars went onto win 44-29 against Canada.

Personal Details

He is the latest Argentine to play for Leeds Carnegie following in the footsteps of fellow internationals Diego Albanese, Pablo Bouza, Martin Schusterman and Alberto Di Bernardo.
