    DAVID POCOCK UPDATE

    March 15, 2013

    Qantas Wallabies and Brumbies flanker David Pocock last night underwent a two-hour procedure to repair the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee in Brisbane.
    The reconstruction was overseen by the noted surgeon Peter Myers, who is well known to the Rugby community having previously attended to the repair of a number of high profile players.
    The surgery was completed around 10pm.
    Pocock is now expected to be sidelined for a period of up to nine months as he completes his rehabilitation.
    “I’m pleased to have the surgery out of the way,” Pocock says.
    “Now I need to rest up and get myself ready to start the rehabilitation process. The key thing is that I’m patient and don’t try to rush back. If that means season over, in terms of playing any more Rugby this year, then so be it. Once I get into the rehabilitation, we’ll see how it goes.”
    Pocock will remain in Brisbane to recover from the surgery until next week before returning to Canberra.
    He has requested privacy at this time so that he can focus on the specifics of his rehabilitation.

    Always sad to see a player get a season ending injury even worse when it coincides with a Lions tour bad luck I know but I can't help but feel for any player who gets injured and will miss their chance to play a once in 12 year event

    Karma? You mean "You get what you deserve"?

    What exactly do you think in Pocock's actions deserves an extremely painful, often career-ending injury, which if he can come back requires long rehabilitation?

    Pocock might not be liked around here for leaving us last year, but I doubt there are many here who would say he deserves this injury.
