Upon David Pocock’s return from playing in Japan he sought advice for a complaint with his knee.
Following consultation with his orthopaedic surgeon, the Plus500 Brumbies and David were informed that it would be in the best interest of both parties that he underwent a minor operative procedure.
The surgery took place yesterday, Saturday 20 January, and identified damage to his meniscus.
His timeline for return to play is up to three months.
After appropriate post-operative rehabilitation, David is expected to make a full recovery.
