Will All Blacks or Wallabies win rugby's biggest prize?

Australia number eight David Pocock has invited "legend" Sir David Attenborough to Saturday's World Cup final against New Zealand at Twickenham.

While many of his Wallabies team-mates unwound after Sunday's last-four victory over Argentina by riding Segways, Zimbabwe-born Pocock tuned into a wildlife documentary.

One of the World Cup's standout performers, who averages over three turnovers each match, Pocock is a climate change activist and during this tournament has used his Twitter account to highlight the plight of rhinos in Africa.

Having been instrumental in Australia securing a record-equalling fourth appearance in the final, Pocock insists the occasion would be complete if Attenborough could able to attend.

"I'm a big fan of wildlife programmes, particularly those by David Attenborough. He's a big hero of mine," Pocock said.

"On Sunday for post-game recovery I put on a couple of Attenborough episodes and put my feet up.

"I was rewatching his Africa series. If he wants to come to the final I'm sure we could organise some tickets. He's a legend."
