Wallabies v Wales rugby Test news: David Pocock, lineout woes


NEWPORT — David Pocock admits Australia’s lineout needs to improve dramatically if they are to have any chance of putting Wales to the sword early Sunday morning (4.20am AEDT).

In Japan the All Blacks dealt comfortably with the Wallabies at set pieces and Pocock is fully aware that against European opponents they will need to be at their best.

“We have got to be getting better quality ball to our halfbacks,” Pocock said at the team’s training base at the plush Celtic Manor resort in Newport — venue of the 2010 Ryder Cup.

“That is something we are working on as we know how important it is.

“As a forward pack we had a chance last week to put some work into that and we will continue that today.”
