  • Nathan Plegat

Le troisième ligne australien a officialisé ce matin son retrait de la scène internationale.  

 

Apres avoir joué son premier match avec les Wallabies en 2008, il a su s’imposer comme leader.Il participe à la coupe du monde 2011 et est élu homme du match du quart de finale contre l’Afrique du Sud. Il est considéré comme l’un des meilleurs plaqueurs du monde. L’australien compte un total de 83 sélections dont une finale perdue à la coupe du monde en 2015.

Aujourd’hui, il est encore sous contrat avec le club japonais des Panasonic Wild Knights. Pocock est surtout très engagé dans la vie associative, notamment la défense de l’environnement et la lutte contre les discriminations dans le sport.

David Pocock a annoncé la fin de sa carrière internationale ce matin, à travers un post Instagram.

While we're still feeling the disappointment of falling well short of our goal, and I know many supporters of the @wallabies are too, I wanted to thank everyone for their support during #RWC2019 and during my time in Australian rugby. . Congrats to England on the win – you guys were too good on Saturday night. All the best for the rest of the tournament. . As a kid growing up in lower Gweru, I dreamed of playing rugby at the highest level. To move to Australia in 2002 and then have the opportunity to do that over the last decade and a bit has been an honour and privilege I'm very grateful for. I'm met so many good people and made some great friends. . Individual achievement is a myth so there are so many people to thank. I'll never forget where I come from – thanks to my team mates and coaches while at MCS, MCC (Gweru) and the year I spent at Port Alfred High School during the nervous wait to hear if we got an Australian visa. . And thanks to everyone who has helped me so much since then. My family, friends, coaches, team mates, medical staff and many, many others. Thank you. . And to my mate, @emmaawpocock, thanks for your love and support over the last 10 years. Really excited about the next chapter and what it holds for us. . ?: @stu_walmsley, @mullanphoto and others
