Rocky Elsom talks to new team-mate Gordon D'Arcy

Rocky Elsom talks to new team-mate Gordon D'Arcy

After and impressive Tri Nations campaign, Aussie flanker Rocky Elsom landed in Dublin last Thursday to join his new club, Leinster.

Rocky, who was an interested spectator at Leinster’s 19-13 victory over the Ospreys on Friday night, could be in contention for a place in the Leinster squad for next week’s clash with Munster, alongside Southafrican fellow newcomer CJ Van Der Linde.

The Australian international back-row forward won’t be available for the Wallabies Autumn tests, but he gave every indication his northern hemisphere adventure would be brief. “I want to keep playing for Australia,” Elsom said. “That’s something that I definitely want to do and the sooner the better on that front.”
