Exeter Chiefs swoop for fly-half Ignacio Mieres

Mieres has also had spells with Perpignan and Stade Francais

Exeter Chiefs have signed fly-half Ignacio Mieres from Argentine side Deportiva Francesca.

The 23-year-old Argentina international arrives after fellow fly-half Gareth Steenson limped out of Saturday's defeat by London Irish.

"His all-round game is pretty good," said Exeter head coach Rob Baxter.

"He brings a bit of experience in a position where we felt we were a bit thin. With Steeno taking a knock on Saturday, his timing is pretty good."
