Worcester Warriors: Agustin Creevy made Argentina captain

Creevy featured in all of Argentina's games in the 2011 World Cup

Worcester Warriors hooker Agustin Creevy has been named captain of Argentina's national team.

The 29-year-old is set to lead the Pumas in their forthcoming Rugby Championship matches against Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

"This is an immense joy. I did not expect this as there are many other players with important qualities," said Creevy, who has 28 caps.

"I receive it with great honour and I hope to keep guiding our players."

Creevy joined Warriors from Montpellier in the summer of 2013 and marked his debut for the Sixways club with a try against Sale in the Amlin Cup in October.

He scored his first Premiership try against Exeter in April amid a wretched season for the Warriors that saw them relegated back to the Championship.

Worcester will start life back in the second tier with a trip to Bristol on a date to be confirmed between Friday 5 and Sunday 7 September.
