Gloucester Rugby is currently Ranking last in Premiership. The Buenos Aires native already knows the premiership. Having played for the Newcastle Falcons between 2017 and 2019 (before returning to Argentina to play for the Jaguars).

Commenting on the exit of Hanson and arrival of Socino, Chief Operating Officer Alex Brown said :

“Obviously we are sad to see James leave the Club but are equally understanding of the opportunities he has to return home to Australia. James has been the consummate professional during his time at Kingsholm, and we wish him the very best for the future.  With James moving on, it was important for us to secure the services of another quality hooker, and Santiago fits that bill. Santiago arrives with international and Premiership pedigree and will provide added strength in depth to our hooker resources.”
