Pocock in doubt for Round Two of The Rugby Championship

By SANZAR News Service and

Wallabies captain David Pocock is to consult with a surgeon in the morning with regards to an injury to his right knee which was suffered during last night’s The Rugby Championship match against New Zealand in Sydney.

Pocock suffered damage to the articular cartilage of his knee in the first half of the match, with the nature of the injury confirmed by scans this morning.

Tomorrow’s consultation will determine the course of action in order to rehabilitate the injury.

Further information will be released following discussions with the surgeon.

Meanwhile Western Force No 8 Ben McCalman, who had been part of the wider Qantas Wallabies training group, underwent surgery last evening after fracturing the radius in his forearm.

McCalman, who was returning from a nerve injury in his shoulder which had sidelined him for much of the year, is expected to be out of action for a minimum of three months.
