With the World Cup now a distant memory and Super Rugby not returning till February, many southern hemisphere players are taking a well earned holiday.
While most would choose two weeks in the sun away from the gym, Australian captain David Pocock has gone in a different direction entirely. Upon a recent safari visit to Zimbabwe, Pocock decided he simply couldn't resist the temptation to work out, going so far to create a gym in the bush.
The Brumbies flanker didn't stop there as he went looking for some new workout buddies. He eventually decided that the men charged with protecting the rhinos of Zimbabwe were the perfect candidates.

Nice to see David making new friends on his "holidays" before his return to pre-season training begins in December.
