Josevata Rokocoko

19 Dec 2014
Joe Rokocoko is a player whose attacking qualities are without question. Add to this his defensive game and high work-rate and you have a special player. 

Rokocoko has set the standard for finishing and creating exhilarating tries. He had a disappointing season by his own high standards in 2009 and missed out on the All Blacks’ end of season tour to Europe. 

But he showed remarkable determination to hit back in 2010, upping his workrate to become the top try scorer for the Blues and reestablishing himself as an integral feature of the All Blacks backline.

Rokocoko has the distinction of having played for both the Blues and the All Blacks before appearing in provincial rugby for Auckland.
