Pocock faces fitness fight

Australia openside David Pocock is a doubt for Saturday's crucial World Cup Pool C clash with Ireland due to a tight back.

Pocock missed the eve-of-match captain's run at Eden Park as a precautionary measure, but will be reassessed in the hours before the game.

The 23-year-old back row is a key player for the Wallabies and was recently hailed by All Black great Josh Kronfeld as the best seven in the game.
