    Pocock to make comeback

    2014-01-28 07:55

    Canberra - Former Australia captain David Pocock will return from a 10-month injury absence in a Super Rugby trial match for the Brumbies against the Highlanders on Friday.

    Pocock hasn't played since he ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee during a match against the Waratahs in March.

    The openside flank, who captained Australia in 2012, said: "It's the first big surgery I've had, but the Brumbies have such a good rehab programme and I'm very confident with where I'm at and it's all mental now. I'm nervous, but I'm more excited."
