Wallabies confident Pocock will play Scotland game

The Wallabies expect star flanker David Pocock to make a full recovery for the Scotland clash this weekend.

The 28-year-old ran on for the first time as Blindside flanker and suffered a concussion during the Wales clash which sent him to the bench.

There were fears across the Australian camp when the the match doctor benched the Brumbies star, who had only just returned to the game from injury.


All head injury assessment protocols will be adhered to, but the Wallabies are confident Pocock will line up at Murrayfield for the second leg of the Spring Tour.

Hooker James Hanson is expected to be back in training next week, after he underwent surgery on a fractured jaw last week.

Hanson’s departure saw Waratahs youngster Tolu Latu become the Wallabies 12th debutant this year.

It’s likely Hanson will be available for the tour-ending clash with England on December 3, or possibly the crucial showdown with Ireland the week prior.
