Who is Santiago Carreras?

Santiago Carreras has been a professional rugby union player since 2019, starting his career with the Jaguares before moving to Gloucester in 2020.

He is a versatile back that can operate at fly-half, wing and full-back.

Where is Santiago Carreras from?

Carreras was born in Cordoba, a city in central Argentina that is the capital of Cordoba Province and the second-most populous city in the country after Buenos Aires.

How old is Santiago Carreras?

Carreras was born on 30th March, 1998 and is 25 years old.

What club does Santiago Carreras play for?

Carreras started his senior career at Jaguares, a professional team based in Buenos Aires, before making the switch to English Premiership side Gloucester in 2020.

Since joining the Cherry and Whites, the talented back has scored 124 points from 53 appearances and he signed a new contract with the club in June 2022. 

What position does Santiago Carreras play?

Carreras can play as a full-back and on the wing but his predominant position for club and country is fly-half.

The Argentina ace has been named as one of two number 10s for his country's 2023 Rugby World Cup squad, Nicolas Sanchez being the other.

Carreras is quality with ball in hand and made 15 carries in Argentina's Rugby Championship win over Australia in 2023. However, he is not the designated goal-kicker, with that responsibility falling to Emiliano Boffelli.

How many points has Santiago Carreras scored?

As Carreras is not Argentina's goal-kicker, his points tally for his country is relatively low for a fly-half. He has 31 points from 35 appearances for Los Pumas.

Will Santiago Carreras play for Argentina?

Unless head coach Michael Cheika has a change of heart or Carreras gets injured, the Gloucester playmaker will be the starting fly-half at the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

The 25-year-old's energy, pace and ball-carrying skills make him dangerous in that number 10 position and he will be getting the nod over Sanchez, who is 10 years his senior.
