Pocock relieved to get first match behind him

Former Brumbies captain David Pocock’s chances of playing in the 2015 Rugby World Cup took a big step in the right direction after he came through his first match following a knee reconstruction.

Pocock came through the Brumbies pre-season warm up against the Western Force in Perth on Friday having played for 60 minutes.

The Western Force won the match 31-21 but Pocock was relieved to get his first match under his belt.

Pocock had just started to find his feet as Wallabies captain in 2013 when he suffered a knee injury which ended his season which led to reconstructive surgery.

The Zimbabwean born forward returned to the field in 2014 but he suffered a similar injury which needed surgery again causing him to miss the season.

Speaking after the match Pocock said, “It’s been a long time out and it’s always good to get that first one out of the way.”

“I was just happy to get through it and be back out there playing for the team,” added Pocock.
