Public service announcement: There’s something about David Pocock.
In fact, there are many, many things about him. And they’re all good.
At a time when it feels like reaching for men we can be proud of in sport is a fools’ game, the Wallabies has more than one player on its team who is a Role Model in every sense of the term.

Here are six more reasons to celebrate him.
