Argentinean wing sensation Gonzalo Camacho can’t wait to be introduced to more of his new Harlequins team-mates after winning his third cap for his country against England in the Theatre of Dreams – aka Old Trafford last week.
The 24 year-old signed from the Buenos Aires Cricket and Rugby Club to supplement Quins pace out wide, showed glimpses of what Quins fans can expect by almost grabbing a consolation try for the Pumas and is looking forward to sharpening his skills in the Guinness Premiership next season.
"I am very proud that Harlequins wanted me. I want to play professional rugby and I will give it my best shot to do well for the team," said Camacho.
"It was important that a player like Gonzalo Tiesi is at the club. He will introduce me to the other players, which is very important. Team spirit is very important in rugby.
"I am hoping that my move to Harlequins will be a good move for both my club and also my country. It can only benefit me to improve my skills and take me to another level.
"I would like to establish myself in the side and maybe one day play in a world cup. But sport is about playing regularly and consistently. Harlequins have some very good wingers so it will not be easy for me to establish myself, but I am willing to work very hard and take my chance when it arrives."
Camacho was excited with his first test start overseas, even though it was not at Twickenham, and he almost capped a fine display with a consolation try for the Pumas near the end.
"It was a very special moment for me to play at Old Trafford. The stadium is awesome, and back in Argentina we see all the matches involving Carlos Tevez playing for Manchester United, so it is incredible and an amazing feeling to play here as well.
"It was a very difficult match. We wanted to win like always but sometimes the other team plays better and with the scheme of the match they know what to do more than we.
"I thought I had scored, but the linesman said I put a foot in touch, so I was disappointed that it was disallowed especially as I have scored in my previous appearances for the Pumas against Uruguay and Chile."
Camacho then issued a warning to Danny Care and Nick Easter to expect a very different Argentina this week when the teams meet again in Salta, at the foot of the Andes.
"We have not played as a team since November last year. Next week in Argentina it will be a very different match. This week it was England’s turn but in Argentina, and with another week’s practice we will be a little bit better prepared."
