Veteran hooker Agustín Creevy has been ruled out of Argentina’s upcoming Rugby Championship Test against the Wallabies in Brisbane on Saturday.
The 34-year-old Creevy sustained a shoulder injury in Los Pumas’ agonising 20-16 defeat by the All Blacks at home in Buenos Aires last Saturday and will therefore not travel with the 30-man squad to Australia.
Backup hooker Julian Montoya is expected to replace Creevy in Argentina’s starting lineup for the game against the Wallabies, who went down 35-17 to the Springboks in their opening match of the tournament.
Argentina touring squad – Matías Alemanno, Emiliano Boffelli, Sebastián Cancelliere, Santiago Cordero, Tomás Cubelli, Jerónimo de la Fuenta, Joaquín Díaz Bonilla, Felipe Ezcurra, Juan Figallo, Ramiro Herrera, Facundo Isa, Marcos Kremer, Tomás Lavanini, Juan Manuel Leguizamón, Tomás Lezana, Pablo Matera, Santiago Medrano, Lucas Mensa, Manuel Montero, Julián Montoya, Matías Moroni, Ramiro Moyano, Matías Orlando, Javier Desio Ortega, Guido Petti, Nicolás Sánchez, Santiago Socino, Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, Joaquín Tuculet, Mayco Vivas.
