Argentina international Agustin Creevy is joining London Irish with immediate effect.
The former international captain made 89 appearances for Los Pumas, including playing at two Rugby World Cups. His impressive number of international caps ensures that Creevy is currently the most capped Argentinian international player of all time.
Over half of his international appearances were as Argentina captain, proving his leadership qualities on the highest stage.
The hooker’s career has seen him develop his game in France with Biarritz, Clermont and Montpellier before joining Worcester Warriors. More recently, Creevy has been playing with Super Rugby’s Jaguares, helping the Argentinean franchise to the 2019 Super Rugby Final.
Creevy’s arrival at London Irish sees the Exiles’ amount of different nationalities grow to 10. The squad currently has players from Ireland, England, New Zealand, Australia, Scotland, Fiji, Zimbabwe, Samoa, Tonga and now Argentina.
Commenting on the latest addition to the squad, Declan Kidney, Director of Rugby, said:
“Agustin comes to London Irish with a fantastic amount of club and international experience. Hopefully he can help to continue the journey that the club is on.”
“I am looking forward to joining London Irish and playing in England once again,” explained Creevy, adding: “Declan spoke very highly of the club, the people and the direction they want to go. I can’t wait to join up with my teammates and to get stuck in.”
London Irish lost 17-34 away at Bath last Saturday as the Gallagher Premiership resumed in England.
