The Zimbabwe-born openside flanker, who made his debut for the Wallabies in 2008 and played at his first Rugby World Cup in 2011, was widely considered one of the best players in his position.

Richie McCaw said: “Ever since I started playing rugby I’ve looked forward to games against other No7s who are highly rated,” he said. “Pocock was one of the best.”
