VIDEO: Two days on from Argentina match and David Pocock's face is still in ribbons

David Pocock's face is fast becoming our favourite part of the Rugby World Cup final build-up.

Australia and New Zealand will meet in Saturday's decider at Twickenham, by which time the Wallabies Number 8 may have recovered from the exertions of the semi-final win over Argentina.

Yesterday he went for a swim to recover but at today's press conference it was clear that the swelling around his eyes is not going anywhere fast.

The Wallabies wingmen Adam Ashley-Cooper and Drew Mitchell are scoring the tries but it is the likes of Pocock and Michael Hooper who are winning possession by sticking their heads where most of us wouldn't put a shovel.

His battle with the All Blacks legendary back-row of Richie McCaw, Kieran Reid and Jerome Kaino has the potential to be face-meltingly intense.

Don't worry, Pocock will empathise with you if your face does in fact melt.
