Here we're going again, says Eddie Jones for Pocock injury suspicions

MONDON – England's coach, Eddie Jones, recalls that David Pocock Australia is uncertain for a Saturday Test in predictable thinking games only from the Wallabies camp, and he's expecting the free release to play in Twickenham.

Pocock was forced off the field in the second half of the victory over Italy last weekend with a severe throat, an injury that raised the second loss of the Bledisloe Cup to New Zealand earlier this year.

Will Genia suggested that his 30-year-old ex-team from Australia was able to endeavor to do the seven days, but Jones felt that his old ex-Randwick club Michael Cheika was intentional to keep England guessing.

"We do not even think about it," said Jones to the reporters.

"I'll hear this every time we play Australia – Pocock will not be fit – so when I heard that, I thought: & # 39; Here we're going again. & # 39;

"You know those funny and that's like that."

The edge that joins in T8 is largely to replace Michael Hooper in the back row, Pocock is one of the best "poachers" in the world rugby, and he's underwent much attention as opposed to the analysis.

Pete Samu could come in to the back row if Pocock could not play, and said his Wallabies team had not been able to train because of the injury.

"Yeah well, (Jones) he's probably thinking he's our minds, but if it's not really, it's not okay," he said.

"It was unfounded yesterday, so we'll give him every opportunity to be right this week and go there."

Australia has also had to cope with a stomach impairment sweeping through the camp, infecting the repayment of Israel Folau and Bernard Foley, among others.

"It's not ideal," said defense coach Nathan Gray on Tuesday.

"But it's a part of a foot, so just to go with him and those men, nobody is going to die."

Jones himself dropped football in the Australian direction this week when the center held Manu Tuilagi's power station in his 26-man squad, only a day after graduating that Leicester Tigers center's forecasts were included as "very suspicious" .

Tuilagi was supposed to be the first international appearance since 2016 internationally opening November against South Africa, just pulling back from the bench due to stress of a graze.
