Zimbabwean born Australian based Rugby Player David Pocock yesterday bid his teammates and fans an emotional goodbye as he is retiring from international Rugby.
Pocock who said his goodbyes after a World Cup quarter-final exit in Japan had this to say to his teammates and fans:
Not how I thought I’d end, just cop it on the chin. I’ll have time to reflect and incredibly grateful for the opportunities I have had in the Wallabies jersey and for the opportunities that rugby’s given me as an immigrant moving to Australia, it’s given me so much opportunity.

I’m grateful for the support I’ve had in Australia and family and friends in Zimbabwe and the Zimbabweans all around the world now. A really disappointing way to end it, certainly. Put everything into tonight and came up short.
Pocock was playing for the Australian Brumbies and was captaining the Australian Team at the Rugby World Cup that is currently underway in Japan.
