The 27-year-old, who can play at fly-half, centre or full-back, has won five caps for his country.

"I have great respect for the professionalism of rugby in England and my aim will be to develop as a player and also grow as a person," he said.

Alvarez's last cap came against Chile in 2014.

"He's recognised as a proven performer with international credentials," added Pirates coach Gavin Cattle.

"He is skilful, quick and powerful and is a good all-round ball player who former Pirate Alberto Di Bernardo has spoken highly of."
