David Pocock expected to confirm Super Rugby future on Tuesday

Brumbies and Wallabies flanker David Pocock is expected to announce on Tuesday afternoon that 2019 will be his last in Australian rugby, reports rugby.com.au.


Pocock will speak at a press conference at 1:30pm AEST Tuesday, along with coach Dan McKellar and CEO Phil Thomson, where he is set to confirm this will be his final season with the Brumbies.

The 31-year-old will also give an update on a calf injury that has sidelined him since March, but was initially picked up in Janaury at a Wallabies camp.

While the Brumbies have not officially confirmed any move, it has been widely speculated that the off-contract Pocock was preparing to either retire or finish his time in Australian rugby after the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

The no. 7 is likely to return to the Japanese Top League's Panasonic Wild Knights after the World Cup, fulfilling the final element of a three-year flexible contract he signed back in 2016. Full story
