Houston SaberCats Nicolas Solveyra 2022 Profile

The Houston SaberCats re-signed Nicolás von Glasberg Chaet Solverya for the 2022 Major League Rugby season. The 26-year-old loosehead prop (27 in March) is 6’1″ and 240 lbs.

Nicolás played 690 minutes in 13 matches, starting 9, for the SaberCats in 2021. He played  168 minutes in all five matches for the SaberCats during the truncated 2020 MLR season, starting once at loosehead prop, but in his other four reserve appearances, he also played a match at tighthead.

Nicolás attended San Felipe School and played club rugby for CUBA in the URBA since 2016. He played for Argentina XV in 2016 in the Americas Rugby Championship and in the 2018 Nations Cup. He also played in the Americas Pacific Challenge.

In 2019 he played for the Jaguares XV in the Currie Cup First Division and elected to sign with the Houston SaberCats in MLR rather than signing with Súper Liga Americana de Rugby. He is another key front-row player for the team, which continues to be among the MLR’s best scrummaging teams.
