Pocock suffers cartilage damage after All Blacks defeat

Australia captain David Pocock suffered a serious knee injury during yesterday’s 27-19 defeat by the All Blacks, the Wallabies have announced on their official website.

Scans revealed today Pocock had sustained cartilage damage to his right knee to compound the Wallabies’ poor start to their Bledisloe Cup campaign in Sydney with his prognosis to be announced tomorrow.

Ben McCalman – who was training with the Australian squad – underwent surgery on his forearm last night.

McCalman – the Western Force’s number eight – was on the recovery trail from a shoulder injury, and he is expected to miss another three months of action with his latest injury.
