Pocock in demand

Wallaby sensation David Pocock appears to be a target for each of the Australian Super 15 franchises.

The star openside currently plies his trade with the Force but the departure of head coach Richard Graham has increased speculation that he may leave Perth at the end of the season.

Pocock is out of contract later this year and all four of his country’s other Super Rugby sides are keen to add the 24-year-old to their ranks.

The Reds, Waratahs and Rebels are all interested in signing one of the globe’s greatest players, while Brumbies head coach Jake White has publicly admitted his desire to bring Pocock to Canberra before the Lions head Down Under in 2013.

World Cup winning former Springbok coach White admitted that he would be "crazy" not to consider signing Pocock, especially as Brumbies openside Michael Hooper is joining the Waratahs next year.

"There's always going to be speculation about the top players …we have shown an interest in Pocock just like all other franchises have," White told the Sydney Morning Herald.

"We want to become better and better and better every year. Bringing him to the Brumbies would send a positive message and I'm sure it will add value to us.

"There's no rush, the fact he would consider (joining the Brumbies) is fantastic. I respect the fact David doesn't want to rush into anything and I'm not going to put pressure on him.

"When the time is right we would be happy to offer him something if he's keen."
