    Pocock in doubt for Eden Park Test

    WALLABIES captain David Pocock is in danger of missing Australia's Rugby Championship clash with world champions New Zealand in Auckland next week.

    The openside flanker was hurt in Saturday night's 27-19 loss to the All Blacks in Sydney, and Wallabies coach Robbie Deans said his skipper was getting a knee scan today.

    Asked if Pocock could miss Saturday's game at Eden Park, where Australia have not won since 1986, Deans said "that's a possibility."

    He said halfback Will Genia would lead the side next Saturday if Pocock was unavailable. more here




    Surely Sharpie would be better as Captain?????

    Not surprised, he looked really sore after the match, even a bit dazed. It will be really interesting to see how they do without him and to ascertain just how important he is to the Wallabies.
