David Pocock gives Australia massive boost by returning from hand injury in time to face New Zealand
David Pocock is fit after a month-long lay-off and ready to feature for Australia against New Zealand on Saturday.
The flanker has been out of action with a hand injury but returned to training this week as the Wallabies build up for the encounter at Eden Park.
All Black back-rower Jerome Kaino pointed to the return of Pocock as a major boost for the Aussies, suggesting the visitors will be a 'different beast' to the side that suffered back-to-back thrashings by New Zealand in August.
