THE MAKING OF A FOOTBALLER, SOCIAL WARRIOR AND ENVIRONMENTALIST

At 27, he made headlines around the world for his standout performances with the Wallabies during the 2015 Rugby World Cup. But David Pocock’s road to success has not been easy. Fleeing to Australia from Zimbabwe at the age of 14, he overcame emotional trauma through sport and an obsessive determination to succeed. Later, as major injuries threatened to end his career, he fought just as obsessively to overcome every setback.

Now he’s directing his passion to social and environmental change in Australia and Africa – and is prepared to risk his career for what he believes in. In True Grit, David Pocock, his partner Emma and his family reveal the inside story of one of Australia’s most remarkable sports stars.
