The legendary third line of the Wallabies, David pocock, announced his retirement from rugby, ending a career that had as its last destination Japan, but in which he also played for the Brumbies and Western Force.
Almost a year after his international retirement, Pocock has ended his professional career, choosing not to return to Japan, where he was supposed to play with the former Wallabies coach, Robbie Deans, at Panasonic Wild Knights.
He did not do it because of an injury, of which there were many throughout his 15-year career at the top, but because it was the “moment.”
“There’s an author in the (United States), Rob Bell, who I’ve really enjoyed his stuff with over the years, and I’ve heard him say, ‘You can leave when it feels like graduation or you can stay there and you have to go. when it feels like a divorce. ‘I hope it feels like graduation, “Pocock told the official Rugby Australia website.
“While it was a difficult decision, it really feels like the right one now and as many former athletes say, it is not going to be easy, but it will be a big challenge.”
Pocock still has that relentless attitude of making a difference in the world. Except it won’t be on a rugby field where he hopes to make his next big move.
