David Pocock wants famed naturalist David Attenborough to be his guest at World Cup final
We would like to hear his take on the carry-on at the breakdown.
David Attenborough may be attending Saturday's Rugby World Cup final, if David Pocock has anything to do with it.
The Australian back-row has offered to source tickets for the famed nature documentary maker who he described as a "big hero" at a press conference today.

A climate activist in his spare time, the Zimbabwe-born Pocock today revealed he unwound after the Argentina semi-final by squinting at Attenborough films with his horribly swollen eyes.
“I’m a big fan of wildlife programmes, particularly those by David Attenborough. He’s a big hero of mine,” Pocock said. “On Sunday for post-game recovery I put on a couple of Attenborough episodes and put my feet up.
“I was rewatching his Africa series. If he wants to come to the final I’m sure we could organise some tickets. He’s a legend.”
The 89 year old has been knighted for his work documenting the most cruel, brutal, barbaric, horrific and violent elements of the natural world, so he should be prepared for Richie McCaw's carry on.
