Wallabies flanker David Pocock has again shown why he is the class act of international rugby.
Rather than chasing play, Pocock went to the aid of All Black Ryan Crotty immediately after the centre was floored by a hit to the head.

“It speaks pretty highly of his character and the type of guy he is if he’s willing to put the battle to one side in that moment and put the player’s welfare first,” said Sam Cane, the All Blacks openside flanker and Pocock’s chief breakdown rival.
“So, thank you David.”
It was Crotty’s sixth concussion in the last 18 months and worries swirl around the likeable Cantabrian.
