David unable to slay Goliath ruling

The International Rugby Board has ended David Pocock’s Vodacom Super 14 season, ruling the player is too young to be involved in the competition.

Pocock, the Australian schoolboys flanker, played 20 minutes in a warm-up match for the Western Force against the Cheetahs, but the IRB has banned him from playing against the Blues this week because he is too young. He is 17 years-old.

Pocock, according to reports, is six foot tall and weighs 100 kilograms.
