The Brumbies are aware of a matter involving flanker, David Pocock, on Sunday which resulted in the player being arrested in northern NSW.

Pocock has been found in breach of the ARU’s Code of Conduct and will be issued with a formal, written warning from the ARU, a warning that was reinforced by the Brumbies, as a result of his actions.

“Although I’m aware of David’s passion and concern for environmental issues, he has clearly breached the ARU’s Code of Conduct and put the Brumbies in a difficult situation,” Chief Executive, Doug Edwards said.

“The matter will be dealt with by the NSW Police, so we are not at liberty to make any further comments at this stage.”

Pocock resumed pre-season training with the Brumbies on Monday morning.

He will not be available for any interviews on this matter.
