Test teammates David Pocock and Sean McMahon to go head-to-head in Japanese final

A HEAD to head clash between Wallabies No. 8s David Pocock and Sean McMahon is set to feature in the season-ending Japan’s club rugby championship final on Saturday.

Wild Knights skipper Pocock, under ex-Wallabies coach Robbie Deans, will be playing his last match before returning to Australian rugby with the Brumbies following his sabbatical last year.

McMahon, who made a big impression in the Wallabies No. 8 role in Pocock’s absence, is completing a successful first season of a two-year deal with defending champions Sungoliath.

That match up promises to produce a brutal breakdown battle in the final at Tokyo’s Prince Chichibu Stadium on Saturday.
