Pocock ruled out with Samu drafted in

Qantas Wallabies number eight David Pocock has been withdrawn from Saturday night’s clash against South Africa after failing to overcome a neck injury sustained in the second Bledisloe Cup clash in Auckland.

Pocock has been replaced in the starting side by Pete Samu, who will earn his first Test start when he runs out at Suncorp Stadium tomorrow night.

The Wallabies currently sit fourth on the Mitsubishi Estate Rugby Championship standings after back-to-back defeats to New Zealand to open their 2018 campaign.

Australia and South Africa have been fiercely competitive in recent match-ups, after playing out two draws in 2017.

The Wallabies and Springboks last met in Brisbane in 2016 when Australia edged home 23-17.

FOX SPORTS will showcase every game of the Bledisloe Cup and the Mitsubishi Estate Rugby Championship LIVE with no ad-breaks during play and in HD.

All Qantas Wallabies matches will also be screened LIVE and free in HD on TEN and WIN Network and streaming on tenplay.com.au
