The list of 32 Los Pumas players announced this Friday by Mario Ledesma has several surprising absences, among them the former captain, Agustín Creevy, stands out. who was also not called up to the 2020 Rugby Championship. However, the coach did not close the door to him as he passed through the national team: “Agustín is playing and very well. The truth is, today we are lucky to have these three hookers that we called to the window. Juli, captain and great player. Facu Bosch, is in a club that fights everything and was lucky enough to play in the final of the European Cup. “
Thus began his explanation, and continued: “It seems to us that we have to continue developing other players, as is also the case of openings, that perhaps a player like Benja Urdapilleta is left out. In those positions it is what he spoke and depending on the players we have to develop. Agustín is still under consideration thinking about the World Cup. We are clear that you call him tomorrow and play, “said Ledesma.
Finally, he referred to the context of the call and explained why he favored younger players: “I think it was very good last year with many players, some inexperienced and older, and others younger and inexperienced. The fact of being close to the team and training with players with more experience and level makes them evolve a lot. “
