Australia’s Pocock to miss England match
November 14, 2012

LONDON: Australia flanker David Pocock will miss Saturday’s match against England at Twickenham, team management said on Tuesday.

The world-class back-row forward had been due to return to action this weekend following knee ligament damage. But a scan on Monday confirmed Pocock had suffered a calf strain which ruled him out of the Cook Cup clash.

Australia will also be without lock Kane Douglas, who suffered a knee injury in last Saturday’s 33-6 defeat by France in Paris.

Douglas has had a highly eventful tour. He played against France despite the news his mother, Trish, had been taken ill on the flight over from Australia on Friday.

While still in a London hospital, Mrs Douglas is listed as being in a comfortable condition.
