Wallabies flanker David Pocock has posted a graphic image of his hand being worked on mid-surgery after undergoing minor surgery in Perth.

Pocock will miss the remainder of the Rugby Championship after suffering a broken hand during the September 17 test against Argentina in Perth.

The 28-year-old Pocock only recently returned to the Australia team after suffering a broken eye socket during the June test series against England. His international career has twice been interupted by knee reconstructions.

"Gutted to miss the rest of the #RugbyChampionship," Pocock posted on his Facebook page.


"Back in Canberra to work hard and hopefully be available for spring tour."

Gutted to miss the rest of the #RugbyChampionship.

Back in Canberra to work hard and hopefully be available for spring tour.

I can't say it better than the legend, Kurt Fearnley, so thought I'd just quote him here: ...
"Some of the most memorable moments are the hardest moments and they're the things that you eventually become most proud of. You know, those days when you wake up and you win, they're awesome, they're the easy days. But those where you wake up and you can barely drag yourself out of bed, where you're in so much pain and discomfort where you're mentally just trying to grind yourself to just believe, you know, they're the tough days and they're the ones that I'm proud of."

Thanks to all the surgeons, Doctors and nurses who looked after me at late notice. I am so grateful I have access to world class care.
