Agustin Creevy has been there, seen it, done it and bought tee-shirt during his distinguished rugby career.

Yet even Creevy, at the age of 36, is struggling to contain his excitement when it comes to London Irish’s European Challenge Cup journey.

Friday’s stunning comeback victory against Cardiff Blues at the Brentford Community Stadium set-up a quarter-final tie against Bath this weekend - and the Argentinean legend is in buoyant mood ahead of the trip to The Rec.

“Friday's game was a really good win for us” he said.

“It was a strange game, because we got a red card, but the best thing is that we didn’t give up. We kept fighting - and that is a sign of the team spirit we have here.

“I think the bench knows their roles - whoever is picked as a replacement knows the job they have to do.

“It was the changes that made the difference for us on Friday.

“Each player did their job really well, allowing us to finish the game as we all dreamed we could.”

He added: “Of course we are getting excited about this European run.

“We want to win every game we play, and the next game for us now in this competition is against Bath.

“We played them at home recently and we know it will be another really tough battle.

“We are going to fight and defend our jersey for this club until the very end.”
