Argentines who played in London Irish

Agustín Creevy will continue his career at London Irish, England, a team that knew how to have Argentine players and that last year promoted to the Premiership and was in eighth position when the season was canceled due to the Coronavirus.

In 2005 Juan Manuel Leguizamón had his first professional experience at the club located near London and stayed for three seasons. There he played 39 Premiership matches, ten Champions Cup matches, 6 Anglo-Welsh Cup matches and 5 in the Challenge Cup. In total he supported 8 tries. Throughout the three seasons, he had as a partner also former SIC Gonzalo Tiesi.

The center had slightly less participation than the third line: it played 16 matches in the Premiership, three games in the Champions Cup, 3 in the Anglo-Welsh Cup and three in the Challenge. In total, he contributed seven tries.

On the other hand, Tomás de Vedia also shared a team two seasons in 2007/08 and 2008/09 with a very fruitful first season in which he added 9 tries in 14 games between Champions, Anglo and Premiership.

The last of the compatriots to go through the team is Alfredo Lalanne who was from the 2008/09 season to the 2010/2011 season with 6 Anglo-Welsh Cup matches, 11 in the Premiership, 2 in the Champions and 3 in the Challenge, with a try in this last competition.

Agustín Creevy will be the fifth Argentinean to wear the London Irish shirt, a team that comes from a season that had him far from last place, the one that led him to relegation in 2018. It is worth remembering that the team rose in 2017 and 2019 being champion of the second division, and now he wants to consolidate himself in the Premiership, and for that, he has taken one of the main references of Jaguares in recent years.
