The Roar: Like all good revolutions and re-inventions, the Wallabies at some point were always going to be forced into working out what their backrow would look like in the days beyond David Pocock.

Pocock’s looming 2017 sabbatical meant that the Spring Tour was probably going to be an opportunity for experimentation, but his broken hand will force Michael Cheika into action sooner. Something they thought they might’ve had more time to prepare for now has to happen immediately.

And rushed plans and the Wallabies don’t always go well together.
