Argentina skipper Agustín Creevy says his men are ready to pounce on the Wallabies and take a first Rugby Championship scalp on Saturday.

Argentina skipper Agustín Creevy said the Pumas are ready to pounce on the Wallabies and claim their first Rugby Championship scalp on Saturday.

The Pumas have just one draw from their fifteen matches over three seasons in the competition ahead of tackling Australia on the Gold Coast.

But hooker Creevy believes their time is now.

“We have had a lot of chances to win,” the Worcester forward told reporters. “Every match we can win, but tomorrow is a special day for us.”

The Wallabies have lost four only times in 21 encounters with Argentina, but just once at home – 31 years ago when they fell 18-3 in Brisbane.

And the Pumas are looking to their formidable forward pack, renowned for scrummaging, to end their Rugby Championship drought on Saturday.

“We have grown up a lot and have confidence in our side,” he said.

“We have to have an excellent match for 80 minutes and concentrate for 80 minutes.”
