Numbers that keep him on the podium of various items. Delivery, sacrifice and the first Jaguar captain. Agustín Creevy was not just another player, but his imprint at times infected the team in the most difficult situations. With 53 presentations, he is third in the number of games played behind Guido Petti and Julián Montoya. In addition, he is second with 16 tries, surpassed only by Emiliano Boffelli.
He is “the king of offload” of the Argentine team with the 40 he made throughout his career in Jaguares and also appears first in one of his specialties, the breakdown, where he took 27 balls from the rival without asking for permission. In defense it was not bad, he maintained an average of 5.6 tackles per game.
He appeared as the first Jaguares captain back in 2016 and under the command of Raúl Pérez. He was always in the team and his debut was along the new path of Argentine rugby in the 34-33 victory against Cheetahs in Bloemfontein, South Africa. That season he had eleven appearances and scored six tries, the first on debut and then suffered by Chiefs, Sunwolves, Kings and Bulls, the latter twice.
The following season, also with the captain’s belt, he was in 14 of the team’s 15 games. He was only absent in the tight and tough loss to Kings in Vélez 31-30. He scored five tries against Stormers, Sharks, Sunwolves (2) and Waratahs. Against Brumbies he saw the only yellow card in his nearly five seasons with the team.
With the arrival of Mario Ledesma in 2018, he transferred the captaincy to Pablo Matera but continued with his leadership on and off the court. He gave the present in the 17 games of the entire season and only missed in the initial fifteen in the victory against Rebels 25-22 in Melbourne, Australia, and entered by Julián Montoya during the complement. He scored a single try against Blues.
In 2019 and with Gonzalo Quesada as the team’s new head coach, Agustín Creevy, 35, maintained his place on campus. The player trained in San Luis said he was present in 15 of the 19 games and scored two tries in a historic season for the franchise that went on to play the Super Rugby final against Crusaders.
This year he was in two of the team’s six games. Against Lions and Hurricanes, but he gave himself the pleasure of scoring a try for each. Now he will return to play abroad and in the same country that saw him leave before going to Jaguares: England. In 2015, he left Worcester to join a dream and had the luxury of being an important part of it.
