Argentina international Agustin Creevy expressed confidence on his side Jaguares' chances in the upcoming Super Rugby final against Crusaders to be played at Orangetheory Stadium.

The Saturday's game will also be Jaguares' first final in the history of Super Rugby but they will be up against Crusaders, who will be desperate to complete hat-trick of title wins after previously winning the 2017 and 2018 editions.

The Crusaders are also the most successful club in the history of the competition with nine title wins but Creevy, who has featured in 83 Tests for Argentina said Jaguares are not intimidated by the New Zealand club.

"It's not impossible," said Creevy. "We came here to win, not to see what happens. We have what it takes to do that and we know how.

"The Crusaders are the best team in the tournament and have shown that but there is no such thing as impossible in sport, nor in a final where the mental side of the game and pressure are at work.

"Beyond the attributes of each side, the difference will be in the head. We know it'll be difficult, but we are confident and we know what to expect."

Jaguares with 11 wins from 16 games topped the South African Conference in the league stage and went on to beat Chiefs 21-16 and Brumbies 39-7 in the quarter-final and the semi-final respectively to reach the final.
