Wallabies backrower Scott Fardy is confident that whoever takes injured David Pocock's position can hold his own as Australia try to keep the Test series against England alive on Saturday.

Wallabies coach Michael Cheika hasn't given his players any indication of who will replace Pocock, ruled out for six to eight weeks with a fractured eye socket, with Wycliff Palu, Sean McMahon and Ben McCalman the options.

"He's (Pocock) going to be a big loss for us, any player of that calibre not playing is tough on the squad but I look at the guys who aren't playing and I'm filled with a lot of confidence that they will do a good job," Fardy said.
