Widely regarded as the bench mark for open-side flankers around the world, David Pocock has completed his rehabilitation after season-ending knee surgery and is ready to roll into 2014 full tilt.
At just 25, Pocock has managed to squeeze an enviable amount of personal success into his 72-match career, including a John Eales Medal and five caps as leader of the Australian national team.
He has represented the Wallabies almost 50 times, travelled on five European spring tours and was one of Australia’s best during the 2011 Rugby World Cup.
Pocock has a knack of rising to the occasion, with no better demonstration of than the 2011 World Cup Quarter Final when he almost single-handedly promoted Australia to the Semi-Final over South Africa.
A crowd favourite at any ground he plays, Pocock’s ability to turn the ball when his team is desperate for momentum makes him one of Australia’s most valuable rugby assets.
Seven seasons at the Force provided Pocock with experience and opportunity, but in 2013 he crossed back to the east coast and the UC Brumbies in search of team success. UC Brumbies fans are all looking forward to seeing Pocock back in action during 2014.
