Dave Pocock posted an extremely in-depth pic after surgery on his broken hand
Fair warning: Pocock’s Tweet is far more than skin deep and the squeamish among you may want to avoid it.

DAVID POCOCK HAS knack of making us look at things a little differently, and his latest post-operation picture is another occasion when he presents way more detail than anyone expected.

The brilliant Wallaby back row broke his hand in the win over Argentina earlier this month and is expected to miss another month in recovery.

Little wonder, with all that hardware sewn into him.

Once the wound was closed up, Pocock’s was slipped into a pre-fitted cast to see him in to October.
