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.
