LONDON (AP) – Australia No. 8 David Pocock has failed a fitness test and was suspended on Saturday by rugby test against England, a big hit for the Wallabies chance to make a disappointing year at a high end.
Pocock, which was named in the afternoon of Thursday afternoon, decided the third morning and the coach Michael Cheika decided not to back the back of the back.
There was no direct announcement from Australia about what Pocock player would replace in the team.
Australia has only won four of her 12 tests in 2018 and the team has succeeded in # 7 in the rugby ranking – its lowest honor position.
