PAU: Argentina prop Juan Pablo Orlandi has been drafted in by Pau as injury cover for the injured Sylvain Charlet, the French Top 14 side announced on Tuesday.

Orlandi, 32, played in four matches for the Pumas as they reached the semi-finals of last year's World Cup, having spent the past three years in England with Bath and Newcastle.

He previously played for Paris-based Racing 92 between 2009 and 2013 under current Pau coach Simon Mannix.

Orlandi will provide cover for Charlet who suffered a broken ankle in last month's European Challenge Cup game against Welsh side Newport Gwent Dragons.
