Wallabies flanker out for rest of Super season

8:25 am on 6 March 2014

The Super rugby season is all over for the Wallabies flanker David Pocock who has undergone a second reconstruction of his troublesome left knee.

The 25-year-old was injured in the ACT Brumbies' win over Western Force in Perth on Saturday.

An arthroscopy yesterday confirmed Pocock had re-ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament.

Pocock's knee broke down only three games into the Brumbies' season last year. That followed another serious knee injury that curtailed his campaign with the Wallabies in 2012.

The latest setback has almost certainly put paid to his hopes of being fit for the southern hemisphere Rugby Championship starting in August.

The Brumbies play the Hurricanes in Wellington tomorrow night.
