David Pocock toured the UK, including Ireland, in 2005 with the Australian Schoolboys Team.
Part of these tours is being billeted with local families because of the educational benefits that this brings.
In Ireland David was billeted with a local family , the son’s name was Connor Murray. He was a member of the Ireland team that just toured Australia
After the recent third test David tweeted these photos showing himself with Connor in Ireland in 2005 –and now with Connor in Sydney after the third test.
And part of the story is that the host family was just out of town on a small farm David went for a fitness run and got lost in the dark !–David did not tweet this part.
A great story about what rugby, and here schools rugby, can provide in the way o friendships.
