Pocock to captain Western Force in Super 15

Updated: January 30, 2012, 00:10

PERTH, Australia(AP) Wallabies flanker David Pocock will captain the Western Force in this season's Super 15 rugby tournament, taking over from his veteran international teammate Nathan Sharpe.

Force coach Richard Graham said it was an ideal time for the 23-year-old Pocock to assume the captaincy as Sharpe was still a member of the Force team and could provide guidance. Sharpe is in the final year of his contract and will decide later this year whether to continue in 2013, which would be his 16th Super rugby season.

Graham said, "I really felt it was important that we use Nathan's experience, both in developing the next leader ... and also using his leadership amongst the whole squad.''
